According to Nicolas Perotti (c. 1450):     “Many who had been stung relapsed into a state  of maniacal confusion, and at the sound of music  they were so moved that they had to dance for  joy. They danced until they were completely  exhausted but many relapsed into melancholy and  lost consciousness. Amidst laughter and tears,  death itself might have ensued.” Quoted from Ririko Izumi, “The Tarantella, Its Iconography, and Franz Liszt.” DMA Dissertation,  Manhattan School of Music, 2001, pp. 9-10.
