- About this book
This study of theatrical adaptations of the story of Perseus and Andromeda in France and Italy demonstrates the reasons for the centrality of this key theme for the beginnings of opera. Exploring historical questions of staging practices and engaging poetical and allegorical analysis, «Andromède» emphasizes the literary and theatrical exchanges between French and Italian writers, musicians and artists that characterized and produced the Early Modern stage.
