On the Source Material for the Scenario Die beglückte Vnmögligkeit (Zur Quellenlage des Szenars Die beglückte Vnmögligkeit)

image of Daphnis

In 1859, the scenario Die beglückte Vnmögligkeit was documented by Julius Feifalik in a small essay. This play, which was performed in the castle of Count Slavata in today’s Jindřichův Hradec in 1673, is a German version of Giacinto Andrea Cicognini’s La moglie di quattro mariti. It could be assumed that Kaspar Stielers so-called mixed play Ernelinde represents the link between Cicognini and the scenario. This article confirms the assumption that Stieler’s play is indeed the interface between Cicognini and the scenario, and illustrates Stieler’s influence on the theatre as well as on the professional acting of that time up until the 18th century.
