Developing across the early 19th century, German Romantic Opera often explored such themes as the mystery of nature and of the supernatural, the Middle Ages, and popular legends & folklore. Composers wrote an increasingly important role for the orchestra, often using it to create a specific atmosphere, mood or sound world.
