Ancient Egypt on Stage from Bonaparte's Military Campaign up to the Present Time

Abstract

The popularity of ancient Egyptian themes found expression on stage, where opera designers of sets and costumes tried to strike a balance among the public’s idea of Egypt and the tastes of the day. The disguise of Egypt—both historical and fantastical—allowed for the exploration on stage of many ways to transpose the archaeological knowledge of the time through stories, spectacle, and the reflection of the society attending to the shows.
