Volume update (PDF)

Cavalieri’s dramatic setting of the Rappresentatione di Anima, et di Corpo is one of the most important compositions in Western music. Produced in February 1600, in a small room off the right transept of the church of Santa Maria in Vallicella (Rome), Cavalieri called for costuming, staging, scenery, dancing, recitatives, songs, and choruses for his little drama and wanted it all to be sung throughout (except for an introductory dialogue). Cavalieri, in short, composed our first opera, and in an introduction gave invaluable and extensive information for producing such dramas, advice that is as sound and valid for theatrical productions of today as it was back in 1600. This new edition includes all of the music, as well as the libretto with translation, and critical notes.
