In the 18th century, the Electoral court of Munich was one of the most important centres of the European opera north of the Alps in addition to Vienna, Berlin, Dresden, Mannheim and Stuttgart.
The handwritten opera scores of the 18th century held by the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, a collection of more than 200 works in over 400 volumes, will be catalogued, digitized and made available on the Internet as of February 2017 within the framework of a three-year project funded by the DFG.
