Usage notes[edit]

While elenco and reparto are near-synonyms, there is a distinction in connotation. Reparto has more of an emphasis of the cast's roles they play. It almost combines the concepts of the actors and the characters. With elenco, there is more of a strict emphasis on the whole group of actors without factoring in their roles at all. For example, at a red carpet event, you would use elenco, whereas when listing off the cast and crew, you would use reparto for the cast because that factors in their roles.
