Subject:     Re: Nick Ranson’s Query about RSC Richard III




I have viewed the videotape on multiple occasions for my own research, and I just wanted to add that it is the typical RSC fixed camera view with limited visibility. However, given Antony Sher’s acrobatic performance, and the mostly superb vocal projection of the performance on that evening, it is worth the effort if you are looking for evidence of vocal technique, Sher’s movement, blocking and staging, or larger set details. The videotape, as of five years ago, was still in superb condition, especially for its age.
