Abstract [en]

The Theatre of Drottningholm – Then and Now tells the story of the Drottningholm Court Theatre, from 1776 – the year it was built – to today’s performances presented during annual summer festivals. The court theatre was rarely used after Gustav III’s death in 1792 until it was rediscovered in 1921, luckily for us, because this has meant that not only the auditorium but also the stage machinery, painted flats and backdrops have been almost perfectly preserved. This book provides a vivid picture of the Drottningholm Court Theatre: the architecture, the many different activities which took place here during the Gustavian era, and the use made of the theatre since its rediscovery to explore the nature of Baroque performance.
