The discovery of important new libretto sources, plus the added insight gained from years of experience, have induced Alan Curtis to completely revise his already well-known and widely-used edition of this opera. This new version, already performed at the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, will also be enriched with a study of the manuscript sources, both musical and literary, by Nicola Usula.
