Musica Drammatica, 1. Florence, 1993. 4°, ii, 138 pp. Line-cut of the Amadino print (Venice, 1609), and Act V of the libretto, issued on the occasion of the 350th anniversary of the composer’s death.. As Wolfgang Osthoff has pointed out this publication is remarkable for a number of reasons. For one, it is in "score" format—not altogether unknown, but relatively rare at this date, where the music centers on harmony and the basso continuo.

Secondly, the print is a “commemorative” edition: the title page states that it was first performed “in Mantua l’anno 1607”, taking place under the protection of Prince Francesco Gonzaga in the “Academia degl’Invaghiti”. Several annotations, usually in past tense, underline this peculiar aspect: “this chorus was accompanied by ...”, “this dance number was sung to the accompaniment...”, this ritornello was played...”, etc.
