Comment:        Re: SHK 11.0512 Cross-Cultural Casting

Probably the most obvious case of cross-cultural casting was Peter
Brook's French  Tempest of 1990. The script published by the Centre
International de Creations Theatrales contains numerous scene
photographs (in colour). In Karin Beier's production of A Midsummer
Night's Dream (1995) the casting was merely pan-European, but the actors
all spoke in their ten or so different native languages (see Wilhelm
Hortmann's Shakespeare on the German Stage (CUP 1998), p.473-475).
