Sample text

While the interrogation of the spectatorial role was first made overt by the Symbolists, the seeds may have been planted earlier. 16 Although Crary is looking at the social construction of vision in the nineteenth century and makes only passing reference to the theatre, the stage actually seems to be one of the prime contested sites for the very issues he raises. Although the elaborate proscenium frame is a product of the baroque, it is not until the mid-nineteenth century that the stage opening is completely bordered on all four sides by what is known as a picture-frame proscenium or sometimes a peep-show stage.

Thus, in the late twentieth century, it is opera that has become the site of the avant-garde, at least in regard to staging. The frame has reasserted itself with a vengeance, strongly encasing the post-modern pastiche of images, and erecting, once again, a window frame through which the audience perceives at a distance. From the Symbolists of the 1880s onward to the onset of the postmodern backlash, the avant-garde in particular has continuously gnawed and hacked at the frame and the exclusivity of the stage.
