Donald Jay Grout’s widely praised edition of the work of a key figure in the history of opera provides the most reliable version of the score for each opera, appending a translation of the libretto. These volumes are “at once practical and unquestionably scholarly” in the words of Opera Journal.

Other operas available are Massimo Puppieno, La Caduta de’ Decemviri, Gli Equivoci nel Sembiante, and La Statira.
