Monteverdi’s opera L’Orfeo, first performed in Mantua in 1607, is an important milestone in the history of opera. In this new critical edition the entire libretto by Alessandro Striggio is reproduced, including those parts of the text that are not set to music, in the original Italian as well as in a German and English translation.
