Chapter 1 deals with the relationships between text, context, and performance in Monteverdi's Orfeo. The author discusses the issue of performance both in its meaning for the Italian courts of the early seventeenth century and in its meaning today as a philosophical concept, as well as in its concrete implications for stage directors producing Orfeo today.
