An online database of Italian dance librettos promoted by the University of Padua

A new resource is available to Music and Dance History scholars 

Within a Padua University basic research program (financed by the Italian Ministry for University and Research) of which Prof. Anna Laura Bellina has the scientific charge, Dr. Rita Zambon has prepared an inventory of the Italian dance librettos in the Rolandi Collection at the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, located in the San Giorgio Island in Venice. Filecards can be consulted on the website  www.librettodopera.it featuring a search page and indexes on title, choreographer, music composer and theatre. The dance libretto inventory is part of a wider opera libretto project that includes, besides the Rolandi Collection, also the librettos in the Torrefranca Collection located in the Venice Music Conservatory “Benedetto Marcello”.
