Research the Enlightenment. Keeping the time frame of the Enlightenment in mind, write about theater.
Answer the following questions: Who were some important figures in this genre during this time period? What important works were created? If applicable, who/what was the patron for these works of art? What, if any, was the role of the Church in the creation of these works? Were these works controversial at the time of their creation, or were they generally accepted? How were they influenced by works of previous periods, or were these works from the Enlightenment radically different from past works?
