Still image from Stages Of Theatre: Mediaeval And Renaissance

Second of the two-part series. The concept of the theater familiar to most modern viewers had a lowly medieval birth-in churches, on festival platforms, and in the great halls of the European nobility. Hosted by Professor Richard Beacham of King's College London, elaborate visual tours and the latest scholarly research of Elizabethan and Renaissance stage formations and the conventions they established are expanded upon. With depictions of the Globe as Shakespeare would have known it, the Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza and the Teatro Farnese in Parma, the program also studies the importance of Sebastio Serlio and Inigo Jones to the history of stage design. Accessibility options on the DVD are: (1) audio description, (2) expanded audio description, (3) English subtitles, (4) closed captions.
