Opéra bouffon is the French term for the Italian genre of opera called opera buffa performed in 18th-century France, either in the original language or in French translation. The term was also used by Offenbach for three of his works: Orphée aux enfers, Le roman comique and Le voyage de MM Dunanan père et fils.

The term is sometimes confused with the French opéra comique.
