Gallery Label
First Intermezzo from ‘The Liberation of Tyrsenus and Arnea’ 1617 Opera developed around 1600. It grew out of the sung and danced interludes known as intermezzi that were performed between the acts of serious drama at the Florentine court. This print records a performance held in the theatre at the Uffizi palace, the stage set with wings and theatrical machines. Since the dancers were usually courtiers, there is little separation between performers and audience. Italy (Florence) By Jacques Callot Etching Harry R.
