Gardens in 17th-Century Librettos (Trädgårdar i 1600-talslibretton)
In the 17th century, a repertory of scenography evolved, including such standard locations as interiors and exteriors of palaces, ruins, prisons, caves, forests and gardens. This essay deals with the use of gardens in the libretto of the 17th century, and the relationship between the location and the plots and dialogues, respectively, in the texts. Among the questions answered are: Do the authors link the garden scenery to what is going on in the drama, and, if so, how? Is it possible be discern any typical action that goes on in a garden? Is there any tendency pertaining to frequency, in other words: did gardens become more or less common in the music drama of the 1600s?
