Subject: German Play Seasons of Kempe and Co
Does anyone know what the repertoire for the German tours of the
following English players was?
1.William Kempe and 4 other players, 1586 (he had come from performances
at the court of Denmark);
2. Robert Browne's troupe 1592.
I got only the very barest of information from an unexpected source: a
book a musical friend passed on to me (John Warrack: German Opera from
the Beginnings to Wagner, Cambridge University Press, 2001), and am
curious to know what plays they may have performed.
