Thetis och Phélée


The opera Thetis och Phélée was in fact the same opera as Thetis et Phélée by Fontanelle and Colasse; it was translated by Johan Wellander and the music was made by Francesco Uttini. Not much was changed except that the part of Neptune was made bigger, but the plot and lines and the play itself was the same as the original. This accordning to Swedish wiki, which is also referenced. I read it myself at most books having to do with the foundation of the Swedish opera, such as, I believe, "Swedish theatre and Swedish actors, from the days of Gustav III to now, first book 1772-1842", by Georg Nordensvan.
