Degree of relationship to ancient play:
Mondonville reset Philippe Quinault’s version of Thésée, the original of which had been immortalized in the previous century in Lully's opera (see ID 8682 for the 1675 première). Quinault's libretto draws on Ovid, and is therefore a sequel to the Euripidean version.
