The digitization of the Comédie-Française’s administrative records for the period between 1680-1793 offers a wealth of new data for expanded areas of scholarly investigation and analysis of productions and theater audiences. At the same time, new understandings of 17th and 18th century theater practice pose new questions and possibilities for contemporary presentations of the classical repertoire.
This initiative will be the first opportunity to study the administrative records of the Comédie-Française from 1680 to 1793, using a database that is currently being built by a team of technicians from MIT.
All sessions in French.
