18 July 1589
Degree of relationship to ancient play:
Libretto: Bongianni Gratarolo, 'Astianatte. Tragedia di M. Bongianni Gratarolo con privilegio' (Venice: Altobello Salicato, 1589). It is likely that it drew on Euripides. Its inclusion in the Sartori catalogue of Italian libretti implies that its performance included some sort of incidental music, but details are not given.
