Century of innovation : a history of European and American theatre and drama since 1870 by Oscar G Brockett( Book )

26 editions published between 1973 and 1996 in English and held by 1,749 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book discusses the history of European and American drama from the advent of the "modern" era (around 1870) until the early 1970s. Coverage is further restricted to persons and events most characteristic of an era or of greatest significance later. Both theatrical and dramatic practice are treated as integral parts of a whole. Some attention is also given to social and intellectual factors which have influenced theatre and drama, to dramaturgy and dramatists, to theoreticians and theatrical practitioners (directors, actors, and designers), and to audiences. A bibliography, primarily restricted to English works, and divided according to the chapters of the book, is also included. (Author/DI)

Making the scene : a history of stage design and technology in Europe and the United States by Oscar G Brockett( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 954 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Theatrical scene design is one of the world's most beautiful, varied, and lively art forms. Yet there are relatively few books on the subject and almost none for a general audience that combine expansive scholarship with lavish design. The work offers an unprecedented survey of the evolving context, theory, and practice of scene design from ancient Greek times to the present, coauthored by the world's best-known authority on the subject and enhanced by three hundred full-color illustrations. Individual chapters focus on Greece, Rome, Medieval Europe (including liturgical drama, street pageants, festival outdoor drama, Spanish religious drama, and royal entries), the Italian Renaissance, eighteenth-century Europe, classicism to romanticism, realism and naturalism, modernism, and contemporary scene design. Authors discuss everything from the effects of social status on theater design to the sea changes between classicism, romanticism, and naturalism and the influence of perspective-based techniques, from the classical deus ex machina and special effects in coliseums, to medieval roving stage wagons and the floating ships of the Renaissance, to the computerized practices of today's theaters. Each historical period also includes a discussion of the audience that attended these productions. Such ingenious techniques, interwoven with the sweeping beauty of scene design through the ages, combine with Oscar G. Brockett and Margaret Mitchell's keen scholarship to create a book as compelling as the art it showcases
