This book analyses the story of Nero and Octavia, as dramatically
told in the pseudo-Senecan Octavia, and its transformations in
(early) modern opera and related pieces of other performative
genres. In a close examination of the libretto (and dramatic)
texts, the impact of this fascinating story is shown from the
beginning of historical opera. The volume is therefore of relevance
to literary scholars as well as to readers interested in the
history of opera.
