Quick Reference

The decade-long wanderings of the legendary king of Ithaca have inspired many ballets, dating as far back as Hilverding's Ulisses und Circe (Vienna, c.1740). 19th-century interpretations included G. Gioia's Il ritorno d'Ulisse (Naples, 1804) and Milon's Le Retour d'Ulysse (Paris, 1807), those of the 20th century included Hanka's Homerische Sinfonie (mus. T. Berger, Vienna, 1950), Gruber's Neue Odyssee (mus. V. Bruns, East Berlin State Opera, 1957), Murray Louis's Odyssey (mus. I. Fiedel, New York, 1960), and van Dantzig's Ulysses (mus. Haubenstock-Ramati, Vienna, 1979).
