* Claudio Monteverdi probably wrote eight operas, but only three survive in complete score (the earliest and the last two). Three seem to be lost entirely, and we have only a single fragment from each of the other two (one being the famous ''Lament of Arianna''). These fragments only survived because they were published separately.

* Claudio Monteverdi probably wrote completed at least eight operas, operas and may have written as many as eighteen, but only three survive in complete score (the earliest earliest, ''L'Orfeo'', and the last two). Three seem to be lost entirely, two, ''Il ritorno d'Ulisse in patria'' and ''L'incoronazione di Poppea''). Of the remaining operas, we have only a single fragment from each of the other two of them (one being the famous ''Lament "Lament of Arianna''). Arianna" from the otherwise lost ''L'Arianna'', the other being a trio from ''Proserpina rapita''), while the rest are completely missing.[[note]] It is speculated that, since the lost operas date from the 1610s and 1620s, the scores were lost in the wars that engulfed Mantua in the 1630s.[[/note]] These fragments only survived because they were published separately.

** Creator/{{Menander}}'s ''Dyskolos'' ("Grouch") was recovered by archaeologists a few decades since with only thirty-nine lines missing, but is the only specimen of the Athenian New Comedy to survive in a performable amount.

** There are records of a play called ''Love's Labours Won'', which was thought to be an alternate title for ''Theatre/TheTamingOfTheShrew'' until a fragment turned up that listed them as separate plays.

** There are records of a play called ''Love's Labours Won'', which was thought to be an alternate title for ''Theatre/TheTamingOfTheShrew'' until a fragment turned up that listed them as separate plays. It's also been suggested that it's an alternate title for ''Theatre/MuchAdoAboutNothing'' -- a 2014 Royal Shakespeare Company production even [[http://www.rsc.org.uk/whats-on/loves-labours-won/usually-known-as.aspx performed it under that title]] -- but since ''Theatre/LovesLaboursLost'' has a pretty clear SequelHook, it's just as possible that it's a now-lost direct sequel to the earlier play.

** Creator/{{Aeschylus}}, regarded as the father of dramatic tragedy, is known to have written seventy plays; today, we possess only seven. Among the lost plays are the second and third plays in the ''Prometheia'' trilogy, ''Prometheus Unbound'' and ''Prometheus the Fire-Bringer'', of which only fragments survive.

** This also applies somewhat to the play ''Theatre/PericlesPrinceOfTyre'', which only exists in a corrupt, pirated copy. [[note]]However, his supposed collaborator George Wilkins wrote a novelization entitled ''The Painful Adventures of Pericles, Prince of Tyre'', which some scholars have attempted to use as a source for reconstructiong some of the play's dialogue.[[/note]]

* Many Creator/GilbertAndSullivan fans have never heard of their first collaboration, ''Theatre/{{Thespis}}''. The reason is that Sullivan's music is lost except for two songs: "Little Maid of Arcadee" (published as sheet music) and "Climbing Over Rocky Mountain" (reused in ''Theatre/ThePiratesOfPenzance''). Since Gilbert's libretto survived, there have been multiple efforts to "reconstruct" ''Thespis'' with "Sullivan-style" music. Creator/IsaacAsimov even wrote a time travel story in 1978 ("Fair Exchange?") which focused on a character travelling back to 1871 to rescue the score.

* Countless ancient Greek plays have been lost to the historical ether. Of all the ancient Greek playwrights, most are not even represented by single surviving play, and even of the four best-preserved dramatists, we possess only a meagre portion of their complete bodies of works:
