Lohengrin is a Romantic opera in three acts composed and written by Richard Wagner, first performed in Protected content . The story of the eponymous character is taken from medieval German romance and it is part of the Knight of the Swan tradition.
The most popular and recognizable part of the opera is the Bridal Chorus, better known as "Here Comes the Bride", often played as a processional at weddings in the West.
The orchestral preludes to Acts I and III are also frequently performed separately as concert pieces.
In composing Lohengrin Wagner created a new form of opera, the through-composed music drama. The composition is not divided into individual numbers, but is played from scene to scene without any interruption. This style of composition contrasts with that of the conventional number opera, which is divided into arias, recitatives, and choral sections.
