This chapter considers the integration of classical drama into the public operatic world in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. It identifies three aspects of seventeenth-century theatre culture which may be said to have influenced this process. It also discusses the first Oedipus-based opera — a tragedia per musica entitled Edippo by Domenico Lalli, given with music by Pietro Torri in Munich on 22 October 1729.

Keywords:   Italian operas, early modern operas, Greek tragedy, Oedipus, Edippo, Domenico Lalli
