Music, distinguished by the sonic, dynamic character embodied in its expressive or symbolic form, presents, educates, deepens and refines the mental sensation of feeling.

 What is a Musical?
By the 1700s, two forms of musical theater were common in Britain, France and Germany – ballad operas like John Gay's The Beggars Opera (1728) that borrowed popular songs of the day and rewrote the lyrics, and comic operas, with original scores and mostly romantic plot lines, like Michael Balfe's The Bohemian Girl (1845).
Of course, the melodies of grand opera were part of the popular musical culture of the 1800s and early 1900s, and therefore had some residual effect on the musical theater melodies of that time.
The musical tradition that I trace in the pages to come did not build on the work of grand opera –; popular tastes and, in some cases, legal restrictions, forced musicals to develop in an entirely different style and spirit.
