Database: Stageworks with ‘Turkish-oriental’ sujets


The database will present stageworks of European theatre, opera and ballet with ‘turkish-oriental’ sujets (so called 'Türkenstücke', 'Türkenopern' and 'Türkenballete') from the sixteenth to the eighteenth century. The table is divided in various sortable columns (among others: author, author/second language, title, title/second language, sub-title, genre, print-location, printer, date, manuscript, format, medium, language, source).


The test version of the current two tables includes stageworks of the eighteenth century written in German language as well as Ballets and Dance and is a first step towards the complete database. Most of the information for these tables was taken from Reinhart Meyers Bibliographia dramatica et dramaticorum, Abt. II. Tübingen: Niemeyer, 1993 ff (=Bibl. Dram.) and from Claudio Sartoris I libretti italiani a stampa dalle origini al 1800. Catalogo analitico con 16 indici. Cuneo: Bertola & Locatelli, 1990. This tables and also the entire database will be updated continuously. If you do have any suggestions for additions or alterations, please do not hestiate to contact us at office(at)donjuanarchiv(dot)at.
