Rappresentatione di Anima e di Corpo

Body and soul in the very first opera


08.08

In 1600, the composer Emilio de’ Cavalieri wrote bitterly that he and not Jacopo Peri had invented opera. Rappresentatione di Anima e di Corpo would therefore seem to have been the very first opera. Cavalieri’s Rappresentatione, with its mix of dance, drama and music has since become a key work in our art history.
