In repertories there are issues with poor referencing practices, straight up omissions, typos, poor translating of symptoms to rubrics, poor translation from one language to another, misunderstanding of the true context of symptoms and a complete misunderstanding over additions and gradings (7,8)).
The challenges of the repertories mentioned above notwithstanding, for many, we are time poor.
Collins, however, mobilizes evidence about play-going practices, rioting crowds, and the Red Bull and Cockpit repertories themselves that complicates this reading of events.
Locating plays as contemporaneous offerings within the repertories of two companies deepens our sense of how early modern playgoers might have experienced them.
The approaches taken by the last three of the essays collected here do suggest that any fears (or hopes) that an emphasis on acting companies and their repertories might mean that the elimination, or at least marginalization, of authors, critically speaking, have proved premature.
But with its detailed discussions of the sources, clear explanations of performance issues, and the extension of the coverage into the eighteenth century, all formed upon a solid musicological base, this book will surely be a cornerstone of future research and performance of early guitar repertories
(64) This discussion clearly manifests the convergence, rather than bifurcation, of allegedly 'public' and 'private' repertories. In doing so it offers a basis from which to interrogate the widely-held assumption that different audiences demanded qualitatively different plays--that the boisterous, 'teare-throat' drama of the Red Bull was suitable and desirable only for fishwives and apprentices, and that audience, theatre, and repertory were always mutually defining.
(66) No evidence exists of continuity across the repertories beyond 1617, and there is no indication of cross-company interaction.
The company is presumably just the advance guard of a whole new range of classic companies that will hopefully be allowed to include Graham pieces in their repertories
. There is a new, ever-widening world of repertory out there, and this Denver experiment opens another window on what is beginning to look like a heartening vista.
Before Ailey, although there had been ill-fated attempts to form mixed repertories
, modern dance troupes had fundamentally been the sole instruments of their choreographer-directors, with Martha Graham providing the original pattern and prototype.
No company here (despite the fact that he created two ballets for New York City Ballet and has works in the repertories
of ABt, San Francisco Ballet, and particularly Joffrey Ballet, which has the largest Ashton collection in the world outside of the Royal) has any real responsibility for Ashton's survival.
