Notes:

Original Playwright - Alfred de Musset

Synopsis:

De Musset's 1845 short play is given here with a prelude based on his 12-line poem Le rideau de ma voisine which presents us with a man looking across to a window opposite and hoping that a movement of a curtain means that the woman there is wondering whether he is watching her. He does indeed seem to be the same character as the besotted Baron of the 50 minute two-hander which shows him calling upon his neighbour the Marquise and his gradual progression from diffident politeness to a declaration of his love.

Synopsis:

Perdican, returns from the university of Paris to his father's chateau, where the elderly and fussy Baron presides over his pastoral kingdom. Also returning is Camille, Perdican's younger cousin, only 18 and fresh from the convent. They have not seen each other for nearly ten years, and it is the Baron's hope -- and detailed plot - that they will marry. All seems set for an ideal marriage, but Camille is withdrawn and announces her return to the convent to become a nun. A humiliated Perdican seeks consolation with a peasant girl, Rosette. So the stage is set for a pastoral love comedy. Or is it? The scenes shift between the grotesque and blinded older generation who act more like puppets than people, and the younger generation who use love as a weapon , but with no idea of what the tragic results can be.

Apart from very popular and world touring productions, many performing arts events are largely forgotten about in a matter of months. Traces may remain in various collections, but few collecting agencies, such as libraries, catalogue each flyer or program individually. Hence, unless one knows that an event took place at a certain time in a certain place, tracking down such an event as part of a research project is often a matter of chance. Where research needs to be carried out on high profile and well-documented productions only, this is not a problem. However, both the historian and the analyst will attest that the cultural, political, or sociological context in which a performing arts event takes place is also of major importance, as are the other events that took place in close proximity, either in place or time. A good overview of such productions provides us with a 'social document' that can greatly enhance cultural studies in ways that extend far beyond the narrow confines of theatre history. For instance, data such as this can be used to monitor the health of communities, particularly when used in association with data obtained from other social science disciplines. When one researches a particular playwright one might want to know about all the productions of plays by that author; if one wants to investigate what choices a particular audience had over a period of history and compare this to, say, an ethnic breakdown of the population, one would need to know broadly all the events that took place during that time. If one wanted to do a statistical analysis on the shift in popularity of a genre over one or more generations, it is important to have knowledge of most of the relevant major and minor performance events that took place. In this context, issues of aesthetic quality and the professionalism of a production - which will of course have an impact on such studies - are not the determining factors when deciding to include or exclude events, since all events are the raw material for such research.
