Notes
Content: Contains three rows of four figures each, for a total of twelve. Although the captions include dates ranging from 1700 to 1771, this print was probably made at a later date. The figures are: Signora Sophia Gutjahr in der Oper la Festa del Hymeneo, 1700; Signor Balarini im Costüm eines Flussgottes, 1700; Die schöne Conradine in der Oper Der Sieg der Schönheit über die Helden, 1706; Der Tanzmeister Desnoyers im Costüm eines Oberpriesters des Apollo, 1702; Costüm des Britannico in der Oper gleiches Namens, 1751; Costüm des Egisto in der Oper Merope, 1764; Die schöne Conradine als Roxane in der Oper Alexanders und Roxanens Heirath, 1708; Der Tanzmeister l'Avenant im Costüm des Pluto, 1708; [caption damaged; woman costumed as Semiramis?]; Costüm der Cefisa, Pastorella, in dem Ballet L'Europa galante; Costüm einer Vestalin in der Oper [caption damaged]; Costüm einer Mexicanischen Prinzessin in der Oper Montezuma, 1771.
Biographical/historical: Several works depicted in the untitled print may be ascribed to the German composer Karl Heinrich Graun: Britannico (1751), Merope (1756; revived in 1764); L'Europa galante (1748), and Montezuma (1755; revived in 1771).
Biographical/historical: Der Sieg der Schönheit über die Helden, described as a "Ballet und Sing-Spiel," was presented before Friedrich Wilhelm I of Prussia and his daughter Sophia Dorothea in 1706. The ballet was credited to Volumier, the music to Augustin Reinhard Stricker. Stricker also composed Alexanders und Roxanen Heyrath, presented in 1708.
