You may be a little more familiar with the plural form which is "opera".

Here's what I found:
o·pus (plural o·per·a or o·pus·es)
1. one of series of musical works: a musical work, especially one of a numbered series by the same composer arranged to show the order in which they were written or cataloged
2. creative work: a creative piece of work in any field of the arts.
See also magnum opus
[Early 18th century. < Latin, "work"]

Magnum meaning great. Great work.
