experienced rapid economic development. Ambitious urban planning projects were carried out to express the growing wealth and higher status of the Hungarian capital. Among these projects special attention was paid to the rebuilding of Buda Castle. The autonomous Hungarian government intended to create a royal palace that matches any famous European royal residence (especially the old rival, Vienna's Hofburg). The process of rebuilding lasted about forty years between 1875 and 1912, and caused sweeping changes in topography of the whole area. The Spanish Habsburgs were replaced by Viennese (Vienna) ones, and in 1734 the two kingdom were united under a single independent crown (''Utriusque Siciliarum''), that of Charles of Bourbon (Charles III of Spain). Charles renovated the city with the Villa di Capodimonte and the Teatro di San Carlo, and welcomed the philosophers Giovan Battista Vico and Antonio Genovesi, the jurists Pietro Giannone and Gaetano Filangieri, and the composers Alessandro (Alessandro Scarlatti) and Domenico Scarlatti. This first king of the House of Bourbon tried to introduce legislative and administrative reforms, but they were stopped as the first news of the French Revolution reached the city. By that time, Charles' son, Ferdinand IV (Ferdinand I of Two Sicilies) was king, and he entered an anti-French Coalition (First Coalition) with Great Britain (Kingdom of Great Britain), Russia (Imperial Russia), Austria (Habsburg Monarchy), Prussia (Kingdom of Prussia), Spain (Kingdom of Spain), and Portugal (Kingdom of Portugal).

States in 1970. Thanks to this modernisation, children begin to be educated in Sarajevo, and later some of them continue their studies in Vienna. They bring home ideas from the rest of the world and, along with the newspapers that are now available in Višegrad, nationalistic ideas emerge, especially among Serbs. Another "contribution" to these changes is the crisis of the year 1908, when troubles in Turkey give Austria an excellent opportunity to formally annex Bosnia and Herzegovina. During this Annexation Crisis, it becomes evident that Austria sees the Kingdom of Serbia and its royal dynasty, the Karađorđevićs (House of Karađorđević), as a serious obstacle to their further conquest of the Balkans. The Balkan wars of 1912 and 1913, when Turkey was almost completely pushed out of the Balkans, do not help to foster better relations between Serbs and Austrians, as they undermine the significance of the middle span of the bridge, with its friendly inter-ethnic relationships and camaraderie. Many young Serbian men pass over it at night and smuggle themselves across the border to Serbia. The reader never learns if the most famous of them, Gavrilo Princip, passes across this bridge, although historically it would have been a possibility.

Three decades later Heinrich Schütz set the same libretto in a translation by the poet Martin Opitz, thus creating the first ever German-language opera. The music to Schütz's ''Dafne'' is now lost and details of the performance are sketchy, but it is known to have been written to celebrate the marriage of Landgrave Georg II of Hessen-Darmstadt (Landgraviate of Hesse-Darmstadt) to Princess Sophia Eleonora of Saxony in Torgau in 1627. As in Italy, the first patrons of opera in Germany and Austria were royalty and the nobility, and they tended to favour composers and singers from south of the Alps. Antonio Cesti was particularly successful, providing the huge operatic extravaganza ''Il pomo d'oro'' for the imperial court in Vienna in 1668. Opera in Italian would continue to exercise a considerable sway over German-speaking lands throughout the Baroque and Classical periods. Nevertheless, native forms were developing too. In Nuremberg in 1644, Sigmund Staden (Sigmund Theophil Staden) produced the "spiritual pastorale", ''Seelewig'', which foreshadows the ''Singspiel'', a genre of German-language opera in which arias alternate with spoken dialogue. ''Seelewig'' was a moral allegory inspired by the example of contemporary school dramas and is the first German opera whose music has survived. ''Oxford Illustrated History of Opera'', ed. Parker, pp.31–32; ''A Short History of Opera'', chapter on "Early German Opera", pp.121–131; ''Viking Opera Guide'' articles on Schütz and Staden. The heyday of operetta In the late nineteenth century, a new, lighter form of opera, operetta, became popular in Vienna. Operettas had immediately attractive tunes, comic (and often frivolous) plots and used spoken dialogue between the musical "numbers". Viennese operetta was inspired by the fashion for the French operettas of Jacques Offenbach. ''Der Pensionat'' (1860) by Franz von Suppé is generally regarded as the first important operetta in the German language, but by far the most famous example of the genre is ''Die Fledermaus'' (1874) by Johann Strauss (Johann Strauss II). Franz Lehár's ''The Merry Widow'' (1905) was another massive hit. Other composers who worked in this style include Oscar Straus and Sigmund Romberg.
