Teddy’s Theatre: Tente d’Agamemnon

Visiting Drottningholm we were so lucky to acquire a copy of Barbro Stribolt’s Scenery from Swedish Court Theatres. The book includes reproductions of all still existing set pieces from the time of Gustav III and some sketches. Teddy studied the book carefully and decided that the set pieces he liked best were those of Tente d’Agamemnon. The  sketches were made by Jacob Mörck in 1786 – possibly derived from an original by J.D. Dugourc. The tent would fit Teddy’s outing to the Enchanted Forest perfectly. I made a simple reinterpretation. The set pieces are now included at the Theatre Page. However, I realize there is still a serious need of a proper enchanted forest backdrop.
