From the 1570s onwards, the commedia dell'arte was spread throughout Europe by mixed-gender travelling troupes of professional Italian actors. Records suggest that even before that it was a popular and established feature of Bavarian court festivities. This article examines ways in which it could have reached Bavaria by such an early date. In particular, it focuses on the possible role in this diffusion of the musician Orlando di Lasso, and of Prince Ferdinand of Bavaria, whose journal of his journey to Italy to represent his family at the Medici court wedding of 1565 contains descriptions of theatrical performances.
