Francesca Caccini, La liberazione di Ruggiero
La liberazione di Ruggiero dall'isola d'Alcina ("The Liberation of Ruggiero from the island of Alcina") is a comic opera in four scenes by Francesca Caccini, first performed 3 February 1625 at the Villa di Poggio Imperiale in Florence, with a libretto by Ferdinando Saracinelli, based on Ludovico Ariosto's Orlando Furioso. It is the first opera written by a woman, and was long considered to be the first Italian opera to be performed outside of Italy. It is the only opera by Francesca Caccini to survive.
