Redeem token

Adolf Winds, an early historiographer of the art of Regie, was puzzled by the absence of discussions of directing from the most influential theatre writings of the eighteenth century. Some examples of these influential theatre writings were Monsieur Diderot's essays on theatre or Gotthold Ephraim Lessing's seminal Hamburgische Dramaturgie. This chapter suggests that the advent of the director and, even more so, of Regieas a principally new technique of artistic mediation were the quintessential manifestations of this paradigm we can call the aesthetic regime. The celebrated historical realism of the Meininger, in productions such as Julius Caesar, Friedrich Schiller's Wallenstein or Kleist's Hermannsschlacht, continued a new and notable engagement with history that had been a vital motor driving the new practice of Regie for some time.
