[Autom. eng. transl.] The essay studies, on the basis of unpublished documents, the first opera performances staged in Milan around the mid-seventeenth century and analyzes the forms of circulation of the troupes of singers, modeled on the experience of the comedian art companies. Milan is confirmed as a theater with a mixed profile between business management and courtier-type opera. We analyze the works proposed by Benedetto Ferrari in the second half of the 1940s and the circulation of the works of Francesco Cavalli which were in particular proposed by opera troupes such as the Febiarmonici. The essay proposes in the appendix the transcription of the handwritten notes found on a copy of the libretto of L'Orione, kept in the private library Sormani Andreani Verri.
