A Sociable Moment

Opera and Festive Culture in Baroque Siena

Colleen Reardon

  • Offers a new way of looking at opera in Siena, connecting it to festive culture and the Chigi family
  • Includes transcriptions and translations of rich archival sources that have been hitherto unknown and unexplored, including letters, financial documents, and librettos
  • Contains discussions of little-studied scores still preserved in the Chigi collection at the Vatican, illustrated with musical examples
