Notes & Reviews:
The seventeenth century was a Golden Age not only for Dutch art, but also for Dutch theatre. At the Amsterdam Schouwburg (Theatre), which opened in 1638 on the Keizersgracht, a professional company performed various stage plays every week, either adaptations of foreign works or original tragedies, comedies and ballets. The playwrights included sung portions in their theatre scripts, such as choruses and solo songs. Camerata Trajenctina presents a program of this neglected and important 17th century repertoire, in editions prepared from original manuscript sources that reveal a repertoire that is entertaining and vital.
