The theater familiar to most modern viewers had a lowly medieval birth-in churches, on festival platforms, and in the great halls of the European nobility. Hosted by Professor Richard Beacham of King's College London, this program weaves together elaborate visual tours and the latest scholarly research, surveying the evolution of Elizabethan and Renaissance stage formations and the conventions they established. With striking depictions of the Globe as Shakespeare would have known it, the Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza, and the Teatro Farnese in Parma, the program also studies the importance of Sebastio Serlio and Inigo Jones to the history of stage design.
