Monteverdi's Last Operas

Ellen Rosand

University of California Press

This chapter uses an analysis of the text and music of two central figures, Seneca and Iro, to construct a debate that epitomizes the contrast between Monteverdi's operas and to elucidate their meaning. It elaborates on the conclusions to include Nozze and ends with a consideration of the meaning of the Venetian trilogy as a whole.

Keywords:   Seneca, Iro, Monteverdi, Venetian trilogy, Nozze
