Few people know that Opera was born in Florence and it made its official debut at Palazzo Pitti on 6 October 1600. Centuries later, in the artificial grotto by Bernardo Buontalenti, a fairy masterpiece close to Palazzo Pitti, the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino will stage La Dafne, an early seventeenth century opera with music by Marco da Gagliano and libretto by Ottavio Rinuccini, having the same title and libretto as a previous Dafne by Jacopo Peri, the first and lost opera ever.
