Description: The 28 surviving numbers from the first-ever Dutch-language opera to be performed in the Netherlands are supplemented with 16 dances, choruses and recitatives supplied by the conductor from other music by Schenck to give us a good idea of what this comic piece (Venus, abandoned by Ceres and Bacchus - love without food and wine - is terribly upset and Jupiter has to send Mercury down to restore order) must have been like.
