Title Parts


[] Orfeo. Intermedi musicali in quattro atti. 7 Voices and choirs. Cosenza 1652, 1654
piccolo melodramma, performed as intermezzo for a full opera
libretto Carlo d'Aquino
? music Carlo d'Aquino

Franz Stieger gives Carlo d'Aquino as composer but does not know the name of the librettist. This makes his attribution of the music to Carlo d'Aquino doubtful because Carlo d'Aquino was certainly the librettist
Stieger gives also Le finezze d'amore. Opera in 3 acts, music by different composers, libretto by Andrea Minelli, titled as Le finezze d'amore performed at Teatro Campagnello, Rovigno 1698 and titled as Orfeo at Teatro San Fantino, Venice carnevale 1702. This Orfeo cannot be the Orfeo by Carlo d'Aquina because the librettists are different
