Description

Papers collected in this volume were given at the Arts Centre, Aberystwyth, in March, 1993, at a conference organized to coincide with the English premiere of the first English language staging of Pietro Aretino's "Talanta". Grants had been obtained to construct the Roman perspective set as described by Aretino in 1542. This set has been reconstructed full-size on the Aberystwyth stage and the play was translated, and adapted with new music and modern choreography. Experts on Renaissance theatre practice and aspects of staging and set design gathered for this conference.
