As with Othello decent photographic records of the Trilogy are scarce apart from a bewilderingly large amount of Volpone rehearsal photographs. And as with Othello the wonders of digital technology may one day allow us to not only replace the current images with more impressive performance stills, but even stick something up from The Jew of Malta for which NO photos of any kind exist!

And will create thee empress of Rome."

"Remember, boys, I poured forth tears in vain
To save your brother from the sacrifice,
But fierce Andronicus would not relent.
Therefore away with her and use her as you will;
The worse to her, the better loved of me."

If I do wake, some planet strike me down
That I may slumber an eternal sleep."

Titus Family photo (c) The Bacchanals
"This way to death my wretched sons have gone;
Here stands my other son, a banished man,
And here my brother, weeping at my woes.

Is dear Lavinia, dearer than my soul."

Discover to your strangely abused ears

To shame the state of Venice!"
David Prendergast as Corbaccio, John Porter as Corvino & Tina Helm as Mosca
