Rappresentatione di Anima e di Corpo

Body and soul in the very first opera


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.
