Originally published in 1938, this book presents an account of the conversion of Italian operas into popular plays in the German language during the period 1675–1722. The account is based around a historical study of the play Atis, inquiring into its sources and providing information on the form and stage setting of the foreign operas it resembles. Illustrative figures, textual notes and a detailed bibliography are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in German drama and its relationship with Italian operas.
