Saffo: A Lyrical Tragedy in Three Acts: As Performed at the Howard Athenæum, May 4, 1847
A rare and fascinating play that fictionalizes the life and loves of Sappho, the ancient Greek poetess who was revered for her lyricism and femininity. The play, written in Italian and translated into English, portrays Sappho as a tragic figure caught between her passion for love and her virtue as a woman. It features beautiful arias, duets, and choruses that capture the essence of Greek music and drama. This edition includes notes on the sources, context, and themes of the play, as well as biographical information on the author.
