Most widely held works by Rikki Holland
The Restoration theater : from tennis court to playhouse by Not Available( Visual )

9 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the Restoration, new playhouses were built to replace the many theaters destroyed by Cromwell in the English Civil War. The new theaters, built to stage the probing social comedies of the era, were shaped by changes in English drama, politics, and society. This film shows how the Parisian tennis court theaters, attended by the court in exile of Charles II, influenced the new London theaters, particularly Wren's Theatre Royal. Advanced computer graphics in this program illustrate important features of Restoration theaters. The influence of Wren on Georgian playhouses and modern theater design is also explored
The Design of modern theatre : Adolphe Appia's innovations( Visual )

6 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explores Appia's innovations: replacing the flat painted scenery and declamatory style of the 19th century with plastic environments for three-dimensional actors and actresses, using mobile lighting and counterpointing visuals with music. His designs for Isben and Shaw productions link 20th century theatre to the freedoms of ancient Greek drama and mark Appia as the father of modern theatrical design

This production of Gluck's opera is a recreation of the historic staging of this work by Swiss designer Adolphe Appia and Jacques Dalcroze in 1912.
