This volume begins with the post-Baroque re-emergence of Classicism, the Neoclassicism of the late-18th century, examining trends and influences in the philosophy of art and architecture during the period. It examines selected theoretical writings of Pierre Patt, Paolo Landriani, and Etienne-Louis Boulle to show the development of a Neoclassical style in theatre architecture, as well as the more fanciful directions in the designs of Boulle. It examines their influence in other areas of theatrical arts: artistic vision, theatrical aesthetics, stage lighting, and scenic design. The appendices contain translations and commentary on revelant works: Patt's writing on stage lighting; Patt's writing on acoustics; Landriani's writing on scenery and box sets; Landriani's writing on the differences between French and Italian theatres; Ferrario's writing on the uses of auditoriums; and Boulle's writing on the art of architecture.
