Three tragic actresses : Siddons, Rachel, Ristori by Michael R Booth( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This innovative book examines the careers of three performers whose professional lives spanned the period from the late eighteenth to the late nineteenth centuries, from the heyday of neo-classicism to the coming of realism. While the individual essays concentrate on the specific work of Siddons, Rachel, and Ristori, a wide-ranging introduction relates their collective achievement to social and cultural change. All three rejuvenated a national repertoire and experimented with new forms of dramatic literature, achieving fame far beyond the boundaries of their own country. As they redefined the nature of tragic experience so, as strong and independent women, they contributed greatly to changing concepts of gender and sexuality. Vivid reconstructions of their interpretations and unique accounts of theatrical conditions place the art of three very different but pivotal figures in context

Time Out Copenhagen gives the lowdown on where to go and what to see in this most civilised of cities. With the help of local experts, the guide takes you beyond the cliches - into the neighbourhoods of Vesterbro, Norrebro, Osterbro and Frederiksberg, where most Copenhageners live and go out, sampling the full extent of its museums, restaurants, cafes and shops. Praised and admired for its cycling culture, New Nordic cuisine and contemporary architecture, Copenhagen is enjoying a much-deserved heyday.
