The Cid, Cinna, the Theatrical Illusion - Corneille, Pierre, and Cairncross, John (Designer)

The Cid, Corneille's masterpiece set in medieval Spain, was the first great work of French classical drama; Cinna, written three years later in 1641, is a tense political drama, while The Theatrical Illusion, an earlier work, is reminiscent of Shakespeare's exuberant comedies.
