  • 스완 극장(The Swan Theatre)은 영국 스트랫퍼드에 있는 왕립극장이다.셰익스피어의 탄생지인 워릭셔의 스트랫퍼드 온에이번 마을을 흐르는 에이번 강변에 이 국민시인을 기념하기 위하여 1871년에 창립되었으며 처음에는 셰익스피어 기념극장이라고 칭하였다. 최초의 이 극장은 엘리자베스 왕조의 글로브 극장을 모방한 원형극장이었으나 불행히도 화재를 만나 소실되었다. 그 후 6년을 거쳐 영국 국내외의 기부를 받아 오늘날과 같은 극장이 재건되었다. 1950년부터 약 10년 동안은 배리 잭슨경, 안토니 퀘일, 글랜비암 쇼의 세 사람이 연출을 담당, 매년 수명의 명배우 지도 밑에 신극단을 만들어 셰익스피어 레퍼토리 시어터로서 뛰어난 연출을 하여 명성을 얻었으며, 1960년에는 칙허(勅許)로 '왕실 셰익스피어 극장'이라는 명칭을 받았다. 이와 함께 피터홀이 극장의 책임자가 되었으며 마이클 센트 데니스와 피터 브룩 등 3인이 연출을 맡아 장기계약의 전속극단을 만들어 극장운영의 전반에 걸쳐 획기적인 개혁을 단행하였다. 즉 동 극단은 런던 상설극장으로 올드위치 극장을 갖고, 스트랫퍼드에서는 셰익스피어극을 중심으로 한 레퍼토리를 지향하는 한편, 런던에서는 국내외의 근대극을 상연함으로써 배우에게 폭넓은 연기를 배우게 하고 관객에게는 다채로운 극을 제공하고 있다. 이 극단의 셰익스피어극의 연출은 현대적 해석을 가한 신기축(新機軸)에 의한 것으로, 보다 오서독스한 연출법을 행하고 있는 올드빅에 비해 특히 젊은 층의 인기가 대단하다.
  • The Swan Theatre is a theatre belonging to the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon, England. It is built on to the side of the larger Royal Shakespeare Theatre, occupying the Victorian Gothic structure that formerly housed the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre that preceded the RST but was destroyed by fire in 1926. Trevor Nunn and Terry Hands were joint artistic directors of the RSC when the company opened The Swan. Designed by Michael Reardon, it has a deep thrust stage, and is a galleried, intimate auditorium holding around 450 people. The space was to be dedicated to playing the works of William Shakespeare's contemporaries, the works of European writers and the occasional work of Shakespeare. The theatre was launched on 8 May 1986 with a production of The Two Noble Kinsmen by William Shakespeare and John Fletcher (not published until 1634 and thought to be Shakespeare's last work for the stage). It was directed by Barry Kyle.The Swan has subsequently been used for many other types of drama including the works of Chekhov, Ibsen and Tennessee Williams. The Swan Theatre has recently been refurbished as part of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s £112.8 million transformation project. Improvements to the Swan include re-carpeting of the auditorium on all levels and re-upholstering of seats. The project also saw the installation of a new induction hearing loop, an upgrade to the sound and lighting infrastructure and the replacement of the air conditioning system which has enabled roof-space to be freed up, returning the capability for flying and hanging scenic items over the stage. The project also enabled a number of structural changes, so the Swan Theatre now has more storage space and shares back-of-house and public spaces with the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. The two theatres are linked together for the first time by a new Colonnade. The Transformation project included new facilities and public spaces for the Royal Shakespeare and Swan Theatres - a Rooftop Restaurant with views over the River Avon, a Riverside Cafe and Terrace, the PACCAR Room exhibition space, a 36m high tower which provides circulation and outstanding views from its 32m high viewing platform, a new public outdoor space, Weston Square, to connect the theatre with the old medieval town to the west, and a riverside walk which stretches from the Bancroft Gardens, past the theatre, towards Holy Trinity Church.The whole building is now accessible for the first time for all visitors, performers and staff.Both the Royal Shakespeare and Swan Theatres opened in November 2010 for preview events and activities in advance of the first full Shakespeare performances from the RSC’s existing repertoire from February 2011. The first new productions designed specifically for the transformed stages began from April, with Gregory Doran’s Cardenio opening in the Swan Theatre as part of the RSC’s 50th Birthday Season celebrations which ran from April to December 2011.In 2011 the theatre (with the Royal Shakespeare Theatre), won a British Construction Industry Award.
  • Das Swan Theatre ist ein Theater der Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon, England. Es gehört zum Gebäudekomplex des größeren Royal Shakespeare Theatre.Das »Swan« wurde als modernes, der Shakespearebühne nachempfundenes Theater erbaut. Es ist mit offener Bühne und ringsherum vertikal übereinander angeordneten Zuschauergalerien ausgestattet, wie sie im elisabethanischen Theater üblich waren, befindet sich aber im Unterschied zu Gebäuden wie dem in London rekonstruierten Globe Theatre unter geschlossenem Dach und verfügt über komfortable Bestuhlung sowie moderne Licht- und Tontechnik.Das »Swan« wurde 1986 eröffnet und war ursprünglich als Ort für Aufführungen Elisabethanischer Dramen gedacht, wurde aber inzwischen auch für Drameninszenierungen von z. B. Tschechow, Ibsen und Tennessee Williams genutzt. 52.19046-1.70443
