Proserpine, tragedie en musique

Description:

This is a copy of the libretto of "Proserpine," a tragedy in five acts by Phillipe Quinault. The tragedy was set to music by Jean Baptiste Lully, superintendent chamber composer of the court of Louis XIV, and performed in the King's presence at Saint Germain-en-Laye on February, [3] 1680.

The month and year of the opera premiere are indicated on the t.p., but the day of performance was left out with a blank space.

The libretto contains an engraving of one of the stage settings by J. Le Pautre, after a design by J. Berain.

The item contains a prologue and list of characters.
