Repertoire
See also: Repertory theater or Repertoire (disambiguation).

A repertoire ([1]) is a list or set of dramas, operas, musical compositions or roles which a company or person is prepared to perform.[2]

Musicians often have a musical repertoire. The first known use of the word repertoire was in 1847.[2] It is a loan word from the French language, as répertoire, with a similar meaning in the arts. This word, in turn, has its origin in the Late Latin word repertorium.[2]

The concept of a basic repertoire has been extended to refer to groups which focus mainly on performing standard works, as in repertory theater or repertoire ballet.[3]
