Ariosto in the Arts

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, June 1, 2016

Organizer: Singleton Center, Johns Hopkins University

Ludovico Ariosto’s Orlando Furioso (1516–32) inspired a number of musical adaptations, literary spinoffs and visual and theoretical representations in art and architecture throughout the centuries. This panel aims at exploring the early-modern musical, literary and artistic reception of the poem looking at the many ways in which the text was reshaped through its musical settings (e.g. madrigals, lamenti, operas) and other artistic forms. How did the musical afterlife of the Orlando furioso affect the overall reception of the poem? Which aspects, characters, and episodes of the poem were more frequently adapted to music, art and literary works? Along with papers exploring specific case studies, we welcome papers focusing on the role of music, art and literature within the general reception of Ariosto’s Orlando furioso.
