Abstract
This essay comments on the video film 'Ottone Ottone', made by the Belgian choreographer Teresa De Keersmaeker and the Belgian video-artist Walter Verdin on the basis of the dance production of the same name (1991). The argument is that the film succeeds in capturing the meaning of Monteverdi's opera better than any scenical performance of the opera, due to the stratification of the narrative, the libretto, the musical performance, the dance and the video montage. The dance - 'l'etat de danse' (Paul Valéry) - is the clue, the dance visualises the explanation, to understand for what happens to emperor Nero and is driving the action: amor vincit omnia.
