The success of Orlando furioso in Italian musical theatre is vast and complex. This book examines the main phases of the circulation and influence of Orlando furioso on the seventeenth-century music scene by reconstructing an overall historical and critical profile, but also through the recovery and philologically verified transcription of about forty dramatic texts derived from Ariosto’s main narrative currents.
