Subject: RSC: Pictures of Theatre and Complete Works Festival
As I read about the RSC's latest play with the tenth doctor, I came across some
links in the online Guardian to sites with interesting content. The first, "75
years at Stratford," is a series of 12 pictures intended to chronicle the seven
decades of performances in the art deco styled Royal Shakespeare Theatre from
its opening in 1932 until is closing performance on March 31, 2007, including a
drawing of David Garrick's Jubilee Pavilion constructed in 1769 on the banks of
the Avon, a 1900 photograph of the old Shakespeare Memorial Theatre, and several
photos from the evening of the last performance.
The second, "RSC Complete Works Festival," is a link to the year-long festival
hosted by the RSC at Stratford.
The Complete Works was the first time all 37 plays, the sonnets, and the long
poems have been presented at the same event. Fifteen of the productions in The
Complete Works were staged by the RSC with the remainder being the works of
companies from around the world invited to Stratford to perform in the event. A
link off the main page, "Looking Back at the Festival," houses three galleries
of stunning pictures that capture highlights of the festival.
