This publication is dedicated to a profound examination of baroque opera’s topicality. Aspects of repertoire, sheet music and recording as well as recent developments in asthetic reception, staging, vocals and instrumental sound are being discussed. Contributors from both scientific and music theatre survey 17th and 18th century’s opera from numerous different angles and focus on its present stagings.
