Pixerecourt: Four Melodramas

Translated and Edited by Daniel Gerould and Marvin Carlson

“Pixérécourt furnished the Theatre of Marvels with its most stunning effects, and brought the classic situations of fairground comedy up-to-date. He determined the structure of a popular theatre which was to last through the 19th century… Pixérécourt determined that scenery, music, dance, lighting and the very movements of his actors should no longer be left to chance but made integral parts of his plays.”
-Hannah Winter, The Theatre of Marvels
