Q: Qual é a diferença entre omen e prelude ?
A: I would say omen is more an abstract (often creepy, scary)!sign of something grave to come, prelude is more directly connected to the thing that comes after it. An omen could also not result in anything. some people might use 'bad omen' more loosely though, as in (pretend it's raining buckets), "the clouds this morning were a bad omen... I knew I should've brought an umbrella)."

prelude sounds slightly more formal, I wouldn't use it in the previous context. Like, "The American Tea Party in 2011 was a prelude to the absolute clusterfuck of the Trump presidency."

Also, prelude can mean the opening movement (often of a Baroque) suite, i.e Bach, Haydn, Beethoven etc., but also often a stand-alone orchestral work (Ravel, Debussy) or just a short (often piano) piece (e.g. Chopin (pronounced しょぱん))
