Some say that ballet was the ultimate expression of the Romantic imagination. Others would argue that grand opera more fully captures that Romantic imagination. What did the Romantic imagination encompass? Which one captured it best?

  1. Grand opera is a genre of 19th-century opera generally in four or five acts, characterised by large-scale casts and orchestras, and (in their original productions) lavish and spectacular design and stage effects, normally with plots based on or around dramatic historic events.

  2. Ballet is a type of performance dance that originated in the italian Renaissance courts of the 15th century and later developed into a concert dance form in France and Russia. It has since become a widespread, highly technical form of dance with its own vocabulary based on french terminology.                                         I think ballet was the most ultimate expression of the romantic imagination. it captured romantic imagination best.
