Comment:        Re: SHK 11.2198 Re: Julie Taymor's TITUS

Just a note in TITUS' margin: the colours of Saturninus' and Bassianus'
factions in Taymor's film are exactly like those of the two most popular
soccer teams of Rome: the "Lazio" and the "Roma". When their respective
fans' groups happen to clash with each other in the streets of Rome,
they look rather like the Romans on the film.

I also add a question: is the witness boy of TITUS the same actor which
played an analogous role in Adrian Noble's production of A Midsummer's
Night's Dream?
