The young men were called komos and their songs were called comedies. It is believed that drama developed from narrative songs in the dithyramb verse, first given by a single person and later performed by a chorus. At first there was no identification of characters by separate voices but eventually a second voice was introduced and at least part of the sung narrative became dialogue. The actor could play the hero or the god and the chorus respond as the soldiers or the worshippers or whatever was required by the story.
