Tropes used in Billy Budd (theatre) include:
- Depraved Homosexual: Claggart. Also in the book, but here even more.
- Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Aversion. He does, but it hurts. Claggart sings: "The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness comprehends it and suffers"
- Evil Sounds Deep: Claggart is a basso profondo, much like Hagen.
- Fan Service: In most performances, Billy, some minor characters and the chorus have shirtless scenes.
- Flash Back: The entire opera is Vere's flashback.
- Heroic BSOD: Vere's aria "I accept their verdict" after the court-martial. Wangst ensues.
- The Male Ingenue Must Be a Tenor: Rare aversion, Billy's a baritone.
- It had a reason: Pears was in the age perfect for Vere, so the captain got the tenor part.
- My God, What Have I Done?: Vere in the Prologue and in the Epilogue.
- Stalker with a Crush: Claggart. See above.
- Villain Song: Claggart's aria about how much evil he is and how he totally
lusts for Billyhates Billy and will destroy him.
