Several operas lend themselves to being "mini" operas that can be staged in unusual locations like castles and leisure centres, for no sponsorship and a nominal profit. They have a limited cast and even more limited orchestra.
Is there a specific name for this type of opera?
Operettas might be the term you're looking for. Offenbach and Johann Strauss wrote such short operas.
