Abstract:

This title features a wonderfully evocative collection of portraits of some of the greatest stars of 20th century British theatre. The photography of Angus McBean encompasses more than three decades of the history of British theatre. His work includes some of the most memorable theatre productions of the Old Vic Company and what is now the Royal Shakespeare Company; opera productions at Glyndebourne and the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden; ballet from Sadler's Wells; and West End productions of plays and musicals. He was a favourite photographer of Vivien Leigh, Lourence Olivier, and Edith Evans. He photographed countless plays starring the likes of John Gielgud, Ralph Richardson, and Alec Guinness, not to mention young stars such as Audrey Hepburn, Richard Burton, and Elizabeth Taylor. This sumptuously illustrated volume features 120 evocative images - reproduced from McBean's original negatives - of some the greatest stars of Twentieth-century British theatre.
