On my way to see The Duchess of Malfi
yesterday, I called into The National Theatre and found myself looking at the Festival!
exhibition: scores of photographs of different kinds of festivals from all over the world, religious, secular, theatrical, operatic, sporting, musical…
Gorgeous photographs, too.
And together they illustrate a compelling context for the Olympic Games (or should that be London 2012?).
But where was Shakespeare?
Have a listen to this audioboo…
Festival! runs until 4 June. Photos are made available by Corbis.
