The theatre of today is considered to be the result of the combination of a system of languages, in which the codes of stage direction, scenography and sound space, connect with the literary text, the lexicon of gestures and polysemy of objects and atmospheres.
The Royal School of Dramatic Arts (RESAD), founded in 1831 by Queen Maria Cristina de Borbon, is celebrating its 175th anniversary and to commemorate the occasion the Círculo de Bellas Artes is hosting an exhibition relating the history of the great Spanish playwrights and of the school itself. Masters of theatre examines the evolution of RESAD over almost the two centuries since its foundation, its distinct venues and the most prestigious members of its faculty and outstanding students.
By looking at the following thematic sections, consisting of retro illuminated panels, you can learn a little more about the school: The illustrated debate on the teachings of the theatre, the Queen Maria Cristina de Borbon foundation, the Treaties declamation, Theatrical Venues and the city of Madrid and the school´s professors and teachers.
