Rinaldo di (da) Capua
Rinaldo di (da) Capua , Italian composer; b. Capua or Rome, c. 1705; d. probably in Rome, c. 1780. He came from the vicinity of Naples and seems to have been active chiefly in Rome, where Burney knew him in 1770, and where most of his operas were given (others were produced in Florence, Venice, London, and Paris). His career as a dramatic composer probably began in 1737. Thereafter he produced about 30 theatrical works with varying success, among them Ciro riconosciuto (Rome, Jan. 19, 1737), Vologeso re de’ Parti (Rome, Carnival 1739), and La Zingara (Paris, June 19, 1753; his best work). He also composed 5 syms. and many overtures which reveal an adept hand at orch. writing, numerous oratorios, cantatas, and other works.

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.
Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
