    Selling one’s soul to the devil, summoning up spirits, and magic bullets are all part of the fantastical world of the first German opera composed by Carl Maria von Weber in 1821. This lyrical drama owes a large debt to Beethoven’s Fidelio and prefigures Tannhäuser by Wagner. It introduces the symbolic world of German romantic opera which would peak fifty years later with Richard Wagner’s tetralogy.
