This book offers the first systematic investigation of exchanges between the arts, architecture and the theatre, and not just an overview of the influence of the theatre on the arts, and vice versa. The authors take as their starting point a study of the implications of the use of four elements that define early modern theatre: the scenario, the actor, the theatrical space, and the audience. In doing so, the authors open up new ways of analyzing theatricality both in the arts, architecture and the theatre. They also present many new, hitherto unknown instances of the interaction between the arts, and provide these interactions with a theoretical and historiographical context.
