Edition of documents relating to the court theatre in Madrid in 17c and early 18c.
In the first volume of this series N.D. Shergold and J.E. Varey edited legajo 666 of the Sección Administrativa of the Archivo General de Palacio. Edited here are the papers from legajo667, as well as others relatedto court theatre of the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. These documents reveal in detail - particularly for the performance of Calderón's Fieras afemina amor in 1673 -the sumptuous staging of such works, with awealth of details on costume. Others focus on the ceremony and protocol of the performances. Most are from the last years of Philip IV and Charles II, but there is also documentation on the first decade of the eighteenth century,showing the influence of Italian theatre on the Spanish court.

"Yet another important contribution to the monumental collection that is Fuentes..., the indispensable foundation for contemporary research into the workings of the world of Spanish Golden-Age theatre. MLR Thoughtful and meticulous in its scholarship and painstakingly edited throughout, this book, in common with the other volumes in the series, merits the strongest recommendation." BHS [L'pool]
