The three plays collected in The Theatre of Images challenge the conventional understanding of performance. In Pandering to the Masses: A Misrepresentation, Richard Foreman creates a reality onstage that reflects his own reality—-focusing on familiar, everyday events with the addition of recorded voice and projected image. A Letter for Queen Victoria, by Robert Wilson, is an opera without singers, with verbal declamations instead of arias. Represented in comic-book form, The Red Horse Animation by Lee Breuer demonstrates the play’s reliance on cinematic techniques in its composition.
