Misc. Comments

  • Biblioteca Reale di Torino, Storia Patria 952 e Biblioteca nazionale universitaria di Torino, BNU q m II 88 a-d
  • According to Matthew Vester, in Saubadian Studies: Political Culture, Dynasty, and Territory (1400-1700), this would be considered a mixture of opera and ballet today (p.193).
  • All of the vocal arias of this work appear to be lost today, and the instrumental numbers are the only extant part. A tag for the full work has been included (and sometimes lost works do get found).
