Introduction
At the end of the 17th century, coffee became popular in many German cities and young people loved to run to the cafes. This was a good thing, but it caused resentment from the government. In order to curb this phenomenon, they raised the price of coffee.
In addition, since most of the people who frequented the cafes were women, various bans were issued to publicize the fact that "girls who drink coffee are not educated". However, no ban was ever effective, and women fought back to defend their freedom to drink coffee.
In 1732, Bachert, who also loved coffee, wrote a musical comedy on the theme of coffee for the "Musikverein" in Leipzig called "Café Cantata".

The plot is about a father who asks his coffee-loving daughter to give up coffee, but the daughter is unwilling to obey. The whole piece is witty and optimistic, and is one of Bach's most famous cantatas. It was the birth of this worldly "Coffee Cantata" that unveiled the true coffee culture in Germany.

The Butler's Maid is a comedy opera (episodic opera) written by the Italian composer Pergolesi and set in everyday life with a humorous and witty content. It marks the birth of Italian comic opera and has a profound significance in the history of European music. The material of the opera comes from the daily life of ordinary citizens, and tells the story of the lively and clever Serpina, who becomes the mistress of the Count's house from a maid.

At that time, the European urban bourgeoisie began to rise, the citizen class gradually came on the stage of history, their demand for fresh art situation is growing, the traditional opera theme has been unable to meet its needs, in this situation, the emergence of comedy opera. The emergence of this new opera genre is not only the natural demand of the stage of social change, but also the natural law that the opera itself needs to be developed to a certain stage. The main characters in the opera generally come from ordinary citizens, showing the daily life of ordinary citizens, than the opera to be relaxed and humorous, and easy for the public to accept, so it appeared by the European countries of the urban class welcome.
