Staging History explores how history was told on stage in Regency-era Britain. Exploration, revolution and patriotism take centre stage, as the exhibition examines the influence of history and historical events in the writing and staging of theatre, opera and drama from 1780-1840. The exhibition features beautiful set designs, theatrical documents and illustrations from collections held at the Bodleian and other institutions.
