Eugen d‘Albert‘s Tiefland represents the unique example of a verismo opera from Germany. The evolution of the verismo style (from the Italian vero – true ) was established under the influence of naturalism in drama, literature and the fine arts in Italy from the middle of the 19th century and, in the land of its origin, brought with it musical consequences.
