This new collection of essays addresses the historic and contemporary roles of National Theatres in Europe (such as those in London, Paris, Helsinki and Moscow) and the changing artistic, social, political and economic circumstances that have created a crisis for their position as cultural flagships today. Leading international theatre scholars including Marvin Carlson, Laurence Senelick, Loren Kruger, Willmar Sauter, Bruce McConachie and Thomas Irmer examine National Theatres throughout Europe, analyzing their structures and roles in society, and illuminating the problems that they are currently facing. Edgaras Klivis, Barbara Susec Michieli and Kalina Stefanova provide surprising perspectives on Baltic, Balkan and Eastern European countries, in the aftermath of recent political and cultural transitions. Dragan Klaic, from Serbia and the Netherlands, proposes a novel approach to National Theatre repertories, and Michael Coveney and Janelle Reinelt reflect on the practices of the National Theatre of London and on the implications of the newly created National Theatre of Scotland.
