The performance ‘opera’, 400 years since its birth, in its numerous theoretical, composite, scenic, interpretative components: ideology and commission, analysis of particular aspects of poetry, form and representation, receptivity, academies and theatrical agencies, prototypes of professional singing. Details of careful examination dictated by the confrontation with that poetical, musical, spectacular ‘invention’ that identifies itself with one of the most historically proven supremacies for Italian culture.
