Essays from a specialist seminar held at University of Warwick, April 1990, under the auspices of Graduate school of Renaissance Studies. The essays examine festival occasions taking place between 1560 and 1660, and draw attention to some of the more vigorous developments of the form of political theater, not only in Italy but also Denmark, France, England, and the German-speaking states.

Reviews

"Although not part of Mellen's excellent series, edited by Christopher Cairns, on the Italian origins of European theatre, this volume of fifteen essays maintains the standards of scholarly excellence and freshness that characterizes the best research in the field and that series in particular." - Parergon
