, he Royal Shakespeare Company, The University of Michigan, and the University Musical Society wish to welcome you to the Power Center for the Performing Arts and to this performance by the RSC. __ We are thrilled to be able to work together again, as we did in the first Ann Arbor residency in March 2001, to bring bold and distinctive theatrical
This year's exciting threeweek residency features the US premiere of the stage adaptation of Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children, which our three institutions are coproducing in partnership with Columbia University. It is a great honor to be the site of the US premiere of this extraordinary dramatic experience. Midnight's Children, an allegorical history of modern India, won the 1981 Booker Prize, the highest literary honor offered in the United Kingdom. We are pleased that .....
Mr. Rushdie is able to join us in Ann Arbor for several days of the residency.
This year's residency also brings to the stage repertory productions of two Shakespeare plays, the comedy The Merry Wives of Windsor, and Coriolanus, a tragedy set in ancient Rome. These dramatic selections enable local audiences to see the actors of the RSC in a variety of roles, from high comedy to high tragedy.
Cultural and educational events throughout southeast Michigan enable audiences to learn about the dramatic and intellectual context of the plays and to enjoy a richer, fuller appreciation of the artistic offerings. Details about all of these events can be found at the RSC Michigan Residency website at http:www.umich.edupresrsc.
We extend our special thanks to the public and private donors whose support makes
this residency possible.
The RSC, UM, and UMS share a commitment to excellence in the performing arts. We look forward to developing more projects over the next two years of our fiveyear partnership, working not only with each other but with our many educational, community, and arts partners throughout southeast Michigan whose contributions greatly enrich the breadth and quality of our work.
Enjoy the performance!

U MS leadership
s I start my tenure as Chair of the Board of Directors of the University Musical Society, I am honored to serve an organization that brings rich and exciting cultural offerings to the University, to Ann Arbor, and to the larger community of southeastern Michigan. Where, outside of a major metropolis, could one have the opportunity to attend such a wide variety of events as Hubbard Street Dance, Medea, Tamango and Urban Tap, the Royal Shakespeare Company, and Bill T. Jones in a single academic year When my husband Ami and I first considered moving from Boston to the Midwest, UMS was an important part of our decision. The cultural life of Ann Arbor -it seemed to us then and continues to us now -is vital and accessible, equal only to major cities in the US. Many others share these same feelings. UMS remains one of our best recruiting tools, attracting people from all over the world to our community by bring?ing the most distinguished performing artists to our doorsteps. (Of course, this year, one of our "doorsteps" is temporarily fenced in and surrounded by a big hole!) Through UMS offerings we educate ourselves, enjoy ourselves and come to a fuller understanding of different cultures.
Of course, we could not possibly accomplish our goals of arts presen?tation, audience education and creation of new works without the generosity of UMS donors -individuals, corporations, philanthropic foundations, and government agencies. We are very grateful for the support they provide for our programs.
We look forward to continuing to present the best performing artists in the world to you each season, and we hope to see you at many perform?ances this winter.

UMS annals
hrough an uncompromising commitment to Presentation, Education, and the Creation of new work, the University Musical Society (UMS) serves Michigan audiences by bringing to our community an ongoing series of worldclass artists, who represent the diverse spectrum of today's vig?orous and exciting live performing arts world. Over its 124 years, strong leadership coupled with a devoted community has placed UMS in a league of internationallyrecognized performing arts presenters. Indeed, Musical America selected UMS as one of the five most influential arts presenters in the United States in 1999. Today, the UMS seasonal program is a reflection of a thoughtful respect for this rich and varied history, balanced by a com?mitment to dynamic and creative visions of where the performing arts will take us in this millennium. Every day UMS seeks to cultivate, nurture, and stimulate public interest and participation in every facet of the live arts.
UMS grew from a group of local university and townspeople who gathered together for the study of Handel's Messiah. Led by Professor Henry Frieze and conducted by Professor Calvin Cady, the group assumed the name The Choral Union. Their first performance of Handel's Messiah was in December of 1879, and this glorious oratorio has since been per?formed by the UMS Choral Union annually.
As a great number of Choral Union members also belonged to the University, the University Musical Society was established in December 1880. UMS included the Choral Union and University Orchestra, and throughout the year presented a series of concerts featuring local and visiting artists and ensembles.
Since that first season in 1880, UMS has expanded greatly and now presents the very best from the full spectrum of the performing arts--internationally renowned recitalists and orchestras, dance and chamber ensembles, jazz and world music performers, and opera and theatre. Through educational endeavors, commissioning of new works, youth programs, artist residencies and other collaborative projects, UMS has maintained its reputation for quality, artistic distinction and innovation. UMS now hosts approximately 90 perform?ances and more than 150 educational events each season. UMS has flourished with the support of a generous community that this year gathers in 11 diverse venues in Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, and Detroit.
While proudly affiliated with the University of Michigan, housed on the Ann Arbor campus, and a regular collaborator with many University units, UMS is a separate notforprofit organ?ization that supports itself from ticket sales, corporate and individual contributions, foundation and government grants, special project support from UM, and endowment
hroughout its 124year history, the UMS Choral Union has performed with many of the world's distinguished orchestras and conductors.
Based in Ann Arbor under the aegis of the University Musical Society, the 150voice Choral Union is known for its definitive per?formances of largescale works for chorus and orchestra. Nine years ago, the Choral Union further enriched that tradition when it began appearing regularly with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO). Among other works, the chorus has joined the DSO in Orchestra Hall and at Meadowbrook for subscription performances of Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms, John Adams's Harmonium, Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, Orff's Carmina Buratia, Ravel's Daphnis et Chloe and Brahms's Ein deutsches Requiem, and has recorded Tchaikovsky's The Snow Maiden with the orchestra for Chandos, Ltd. In 1995, the Choral Union began accept?ing invitations to appear with other major regional orchestras, and soon added Britten's War Requiem, Elgar's The Dream of Gerontius, the Berlioz Requiem and other masterworks to its repertoire.
The Choral Union opened its current season with performances of Mahler's Symphony No. 3 with the DSO, followed by a performance of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 with the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra. In December the chorus presented its 124th series of annual performances of Messiah, using the rarelyheard Mozart revision of Handel's great work in Michigan Theater. The Choral Union's season will conclude in March with a pair of magnificent French choral works: Honegger's King David, accom?panied by members of the Greater Lansing Symphony Orchestra, and Durufle's mystical Requiem, accompanied by organist Janice Beck.
The Choral Union's 0102 season includ?ed performances of Messiah, Ives's Symphony No. 4 with Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra and Brahms's Ein deutsches Requiem with Thomas Sheets conducting the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra, all in Hill Auditorium. To conclude its 123rd season, the Choral Union joined the DSO and Neeme Jarvi in three critically acclaimed performances of Beethoven's Missa Solemnis.
During the 20002001 season, the UMS Choral Union appeared in two series with the DSO. The season culminated in a performance of Berlioz's Requiem with the Greater Lansing Symphony Orchestra, along with tenor Stanford Olsen and members of the UM School of Music Symphony Band in Hill Auditorium.
The Choral Union is a talent pool capable of performing choral music of every genre. In addition to choral masterworks, the Choral Union has performed Gershwin's Porgy and Bess with the BirminghamBloomfield Symphony Orchestra, and other musical the?atre favorites with Erich Kunzel and the DSO at Meadowbrook. The 72voice Concert Choir drawn from the full chorus has performed Durufle's Requiem, the Langlais Messe Solennelle, and the Mozart Requiem. Recent programs by the Choral Union's 36voice Chamber Chorale include "Creativity in Later Life," a program of late works by nine composers of all historical periods; a joint appearance with the Gabrieli Consort and Players; a performance of Bach's Magnificat, and a recent joint performance with the Tallis Scholars.
Participation in the Choral Union remains open to all by audition. Composed of singers from Michigan, Ohio and Canada, members of the Choral Union share one common passion--a love of the choral art. For more information about membership in the UMS Choral Union, email choralunion@ or call 734.763.8997.
With the 18month closing of Hill Auditorium for renovations, the 0203 UMS season will include performances by the world's celebrated music, theater and dance artists in 11 venues in three cities: Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti and Detroit.
Ann Arbor Venues !
Hill Auditorium ;
'he 18month, $38.6million dollar rei vation to Hill Auditorium began on May 13, 2002 under the direction of Albert Kahn Associates, Inc., and historic preservation architects Quinn EvansArchitects. Hill was first opened to Michigan audiences in 1913 and this current renovation project will update all of its infrastructure systems and restore much of the interior decor to its original splendor.
Exterior renovations will rebuild brick paving and stone retaining walls, restore the south entrance plaza, rework the west barrierfree ramp and loading dock, and improve the landscaping which surrounds the building.
Interior renovations will create additional restrooms, improve audience circulation by providing elevators, replace mainfloor seating to increase patron comfort, introduce barrierfree seating and stage access, replace audio?visual systems, and completely replace all mechanical and electrical infrastructure sys?tems for heating, ventilation, and air condi?tioning.
Upon reopening in January 2004, Hill Auditorium will decrease in seating capacity from 4,169 to 3,710.
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre
" otwithstanding an isolated effort to estab?lish a chamber music series by faculty and students in 1938, UMS regularly began presenting artists in the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre in 1993, when Eartha Kitt and Barbara Cook graced the stage of the intimate 658seat theatre for the 100th May Festival's Cabaret Ball. The superlative Mendelssohn Theatre has been the home of the UMS Song Recital series for the past eight years.
Michigan Theater
he historic Michigan Theater opened January 5, 1928 at the peak of the vaude?villemovie palace era. Designed by Maurice Finkel, the 1,710seat theater cost around $600,000 when it was first built. As was the custom of the day, the theater was equipped to host both film and live stage events, with a fullsize stage, dressing rooms, an orchestra pit, and the Barton Theater Organ. At its opening the theater was acclaimed as the best of its kind in the country. Since 1979, the theater has been operated by the notforprofit Michigan Theater Foundation.
In the fall of 1999, the Michigan Theater opened a new 200seat screening room addi?tion, which also included expanded restroom facilities for the historic theater. The gracious facade and entry vestibule was restored in 2000, and balcony restorations have been completed.
Power Center for the Performing Arts
"he Power Center for the Performing Arts
grew out of a realization that the University of Michigan had no adequate prosceniumstagc theatre for the performing arts. Hill Auditorium was too massive and technically limited for most productions, and the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre too small. The Power Center was designed to supply this missing link in design and seating capacity.
In 1963, Eugene and Sadye Power, together with their son Philip, wished to make a majo'
gift to the University, and amidst a list of University priorities was mentioned "a new theatre." The Powers were immediately inter?ested, realizing that state and federal government were unlikely to provide financial support for the construction of a new theatre.
No seat in the Power Center is more than 72 feet from the stage. The lobby of the Power Center features two handwoven tap?estries: Modern Tapestry by Roy Lichtenstein and Volutes by Pablo Picasso.
Rackham Auditorium
Sixty years ago, chamber music concerts in Ann Arbor were a relative rarity, presented in an assortment of venues including Univer?sity Hall (the precursor to Hill Auditorium), Hill Auditorium, and Newberry Hall, the cur?rent home of the Kelsey Museum. When Horace H. Rackham, a Detroit lawyer who believed strongly in the importance of the study of human history and human thought, died in 1933, his will established the Horace H. Rackham and Mary A. Rackham Fund, which subsequently awarded the University of Michigan the funds not only to build the Horace H. Rackham Graduate School, which houses the 1,129seat Rackham Auditorium, but also to establish a $4million endowment to further the development of graduate studies.
St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church
In 1950, Father Leon Kennedy was appoint?ed pastor of a new parish in Ann Arbor. Seventeen years later ground was broken to build a permanent church building, and on March 19, 1969 John Cardinal Dearden dedi?cated the new St. Francis of Assisi Church. Father James McDougal was appointed pastor in 1997.
St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church has grown from 248 families when it first started in 1950 to more than 2,800 today. The present church seats 900 people and has ample free parking. In 1994 St. Francis purchased a splen
did three manual "mechanical action" organ with 34 stops and 45 ranks, built and installed by Orgues Letourneau from Saint Hyacinthe, Quebec. Through dedication, a commitment to superb liturgical music and a vision to the future, the parish improved the acoustics of the church building, and the reverberant sanctuary has made the church a gathering place for the enjoyment and con?templation of sacred a cappella choral music and early music ensembles.
Ypsilanti Venues
EMU Convocation Center
An exciting new era in EMU athletics was set in motion in the fall of 1998 with the opening of the $29.6million Convocation Center. The BartonMalow Company along with the architectural firm Rossetti Associates of BirminghamThe Argos Group began con?struction on the campus facility in 1996. The Convocation Center opened its doors on December 9, 1998 with a maximum seating capacity of 9,510 for centerstage entertain?ment events.
Pease Auditorium
Built in 1914, Pease Auditorium was reno?vated in 1995. Earlier this year, the resto?ration of the AeolianSkinner pipe organ was completed and the interior of the auditorium was refurbished. Pease Auditorium can seat up to a total of 1,541 concertgoers.

Detroit Venues v
Detroit Opera House
'he Detroit Opera House opened in April of 1996 following an extensive renovation by Michigan Opera Theatre. Boasting a 75,000squarefoot stage house (the largest stage between New York and Chicago), an orchestra pit large enough to accommodate 100 musicians and an acoustical virtue to rival the world's great opera houses, the
2,735seat facility has rapidly become one of the most viable and coveted theatres in the nation. As the home of Michigan Opera Theatre's grand opera season and dance series, and through quality programming, partnerships and educational initiatives, the Detroit Opera House plays a vital role in enriching the lives of the community.
Orchestra Hall
Orchestra Hall was dedicated in 1919 as the new home of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. In 1939, after the depression, the orchestra moved to the Masonic Temple Theatre and the facility was renamed the Paradise Theatre. The Paradise became one of the nation's most famous stages for AfricanAmerican Jazz musicians (19411951).
In the late 1950s, the building was aban?doned and fell into disrepair. In 1964, it was headed for the wrecking ball, but local citizens rallied to save the great concert hall. DSO musicians and volunteers founded Save Orchestra Hall, Inc., to marshal citizen sup?port for the retention and restoration of the building to its former architectural grandeur.
In September 1989 the DSO returned to Orchestra Hall, now its permanent home, cap?ping a multimilliondollar restoration effort.
In 1996, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra launched Orchestra Place, an $80million development project on eight acres of land surrounding Orchestra Hall.
Burton Memorial Tower
een from miles away, Burton Memorial Tower is one of the most wellknown University of Michigan and Ann Arbor land?marks. Completed in 1935 and designed by Albert Kahn, the 10story tower is built of Indiana limestone with a height of 212 feet. UMS administrative offices returned to our familiar home at Burton Memorial Tower in August 2001, following a year of significant renovations to the University landmark.
This current season marks the second year of the merger of the UMS Ticket Office and the University Productions Ticket Office. Due to this new partnership, the UMS walkup ticket window is now conveniently located at the Michigan League Ticket Office, on the north end of the Michigan League building at 911 North University Avenue. The UMS Ticket Office phone number and mailing address remains the same.

The Merry Wives of Windsor
The Play
Sir John Falstaff and his hangerson, Bardolph, Pistol and Nym, have been outraging Windsor society with their rowdy behavior. Justice 99 Shallow, his nephew Slender and Parson Evans newly arrived from Gloucestershire are dis ? cussing what can be done about Falstaff. I Another hot topic is who will marry Anne Page, the daughter of a wealthy local family. Slender is one of the suitors, and the one ? ? ???
favored by Anne's father. Parson Evans and J Shallow engage Mistress Quickly, housekeeper to the French physician Dr. Caius and a friend of Anne's, to advance their cause. Dr. Caius, how?ever, is himself a suitor the favorite of Anne's mother and Quickly is already acting on his behalf. When Dr. Caius hears of Evans's interfer?ence, he challenges him to a duel. Fenton, a rather dashing young gentleman, makes up the trio of hopeful suitors but against opposition from both parents.
Being down on his luck. Sir John plans to restore his fortunes by seducing the wife of one of Windsor's wealthy citizens. Convinced that Alice Ford is already attracted to him, he sends her a love letter and, for good measure, sends another, identical, letter to Meg, George Page's wife. Unfortunately for him, Meg and Alice are close friends and when they compare their let?ters they soon discover his doubledealing. They set about turning the tables on Sir John and, employing Mistress Quickly as their gobetween, summon him to an assignation at Mistress Ford's house. I
r; When the two husbands hear of Falstaffs intentions Page treats the idea lightly, but Ford, who is of a jealous nature, immediately resolves to test his wife's fidelity. Introducing himself to
Falstaff as "Master Brook," a suitor Mistress Ford has rejected, he begs Sir John to woo her on ! his behalf and, thus gaining his confidence, he gets to hear of the assignations FaLstaff has already arranged with Mistress Ford. Twice Ford almost catches Sir John and his wife together.;
The duel between Dr. Caius and Parson Evans is averted when the Host of the Garter ] Inn plays a trick on them; in Windsor Great 5 Park on Halloween, Falstaff is set up for his ;j final punishment and one of Anne Page's ,.'J suitors is successful. , s., ?
There is a tradition that The Merry Wives of Windsor was specially commissioned by Queen Elizabeth who, having seen Fatstaff in the Henry plays, wanted to see the fat knight again and this time in love. There is no real authority for this story but evidence does suggest that the first performance of the play may have been before the Queen at Windsor in 1600 or 1601. Rival theories, though, have placed the play as early as 1592. It was published in a "bad" Quarto of 1602 and then in the Folio of 1623.
The Merry Wives of Windsor is one of Shakespeare's most original plots and appears to have no major source, although the comic possibilities of the "surprised wife and cuckold?ed husband" theme were already well tried in literature and tricks much like those played on Falstaff feature in Boccaccio's Decameron. The theme of the three suitors also appears in other works, notably Dekker's The Shoemaker's Holiday, while the legend of Herne the Hunter was famil?iar from folktale. . . .
5 The Merry Wives of Windsor
So far from a sitcom....
If The Merry Wives of Windsor is a comedy, it j is not a joke. If it is homely, it is not parochial.
m ' ' m
'. ??' Unusually for Shakespeare, much of the action takes place indoors; at the '' ,Garter Inn, at Ford's house, or at the home of Dr. Caius. Otherwise it happens ""'on the street as characters pass to and fro between these houses. But beyond that there are two clearly "outdoor" scenes when the hapless Falstaff H i: turned into the muddy ditch at Datchett, and the concluding episode that f takes place at night in Windsor Great Forest in the misty world of Heme the Hunter. The same doubleness is in the cheerful comedy of manners, set $3p& . against the anxious internal machinations of Ford, or even of Falstaff himself.
;The Merry Wives of Windsor is a pivot, a fulcrum, a place of safety and a place of risk.
Most critics agree that The Merry Wives dates from Shakespeare's middle period, written about 15981600. The old Queen was still on the throne. Indeed the story goes that it was she who asked for another play featuring Falstaff. Be that as it may, it's possible to see this as a play where Shakespeare takes stock. He looks back over his earlier work: the comedies of mis?taken identity are here in the disguises and frauds; Romeo and Juliet is here in the story of Anne Page and Fenton; the villainy of Richard III is traduced in the petty scheming of Falstaff; the vagaries of history from the Henry VI and Henry IV plays are given not on some foreign battlefield, but in the familiarity of an English
But Shakespeare looks forward too. When Falstaff greets Mistress Ford at their first assig?nation, here is Othello's Act II, scene 1 speech in 'little: "'Have I caught my heavenly jewel' Why, now let me die, for I have lived long enough: this is the period of my ambition: 0 this blessed hour." Ford goes to discover Falstaff in flagrante as the clock strikes, just as Macbeth departs to murder Duncan summoned by the bell; Ford plots his revenge as Hamlet will nurture his: "is this a vision, is this a dream, do I sleep" And at the end of the play all the magical transformations that occur in Shakespeare's great humanist plays Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Night's Dream, As You Like.
Merry Wives of Windsor
It, The Winter's Tale, Pericles, Cymbeline, The Tempest are reenacted or anticipated, in the crossdressing, the tricks and the mystery of the final woodland scene.
The Merry Wives of Windsor is about grown?ups and for grownups. When Pistol tells Ford about Sir John's designs on his wife. Ford says she is "not young". But the Wives were young once, and once they were Rosalind and Beatrice, Viola and Katharina. They have lost none of their wit, none of their bravery or their zest for life: "I think if your husbands were dead," says Ford, "you two would marry." "B sure of that," replies Mistress Page, " two other husbands." But if there is one thing that these two older heroines have over their younger incarnations, it is the knowledge that they must stick together. This is a play about middle age, and wisdom, and how the world has a way of changing around you, and what a blessing that is.
Shakespeare's world was changing, and he knew it. Here is his most homely of plays, but this is an international scene. The cast includes a Welshman and a Frenchman, complete with, funny accents. There are jokes in Latin and allusions to foreign climes. There is an aware?ness of what it means when a country begins to make itself into a world power by creating professional soldiers and sailors and then having to deal with their boredom and tempta?tion to mischiefmaking in peace time. Most of all, there is a consciousness of England's new role as a trading nation and a colonial power. Considering his planned enterprises with Mistresses Ford and Page Falstaff says, "she is a region in Guiana, all gold and bounty. I will be cheator to them both, and they shall be
exchequers to me: they shall be my East and West Indies, and I will trade to them both."
If The Merry Wives of Windsor lies at the center of Shakespeare's career, it lies also at the beginning of the modern world. We recognize this language of sexual exploitation and colo?nization, we have seen the results of capitalism and trade, we know the impact and the effects of war, abroad and at home. The Merry Wives can help us to understand, and to cope.
At the end of Shakespeare's Richard II the deposed King conjures a sad future for his exiled wife. "In winter's tedious nights sit by the fire, with good old folks" and "tell thou the lamentable tale of me, and send the hearers weeping to their beds." The Merry Wives know better. Looking out and up is the only way, and merriment the best of goods, domestic and for?eign. "Heaven give you many, many merry days! ... Let us everyone go home, and laugh this sport o'er by a country fire; Sir John and all." .M

The Play
Famine in Rome is kindling unrest between the common people and the patricians. The people particularly resent the arrogant Caius Martius, [" son of Volumnia, who makes no secret of the fact that he despises them. The citizens rise up against the patricians, whom they suspect of hoarding corn for themselves. They are rewarded with the creation of two people's representatives, or tribunes, who are given new powers to sit in the Senate. '
War with the neighbouring Volscians halts the rioting, however, and, in the battle for the town of Corioli, Caius Martius leads the Roman army with such spectacular bravery that he is honored with the title Coriolanus.
Back in Rome, the patricians urge Coriolanus to seek the consulship. Reluctantly, he agrees to submit himself to the necessary public display of humility in order to win the assent of the citizens, but once again his inabil?ity to mask his contempt turns them against him. Not only do they refuse their assent but, incited by their tribunes, they banish Coriolanus from Rome. In revenge, he joins the Volscians and his former enemy Tulllus Aufidius. Together they march on Rome.
Coriolanus refuses all attempts at concilia?tion by his former comrades and only through the intercession of his mother, wife and son is he finally persuaded to spare the city. He estab?lishes a peace but is killed by the resentful Volscians.
Coriolanus, Shakespeare's last tragedy and the last of his Roman plays, was most probably written in 1608. The text exists only in the First Folio of Shakespeare's collected plays, published in 1623.
Shakespeare's only source for Coriolanus was Thomas North's translation of Plutarch's Lives of the Noble Grecians and Romans. Translated from James Amyot's French version, it was first pub?lished in England in 1579 and became enor?mously popular, running into seven editions by the end of the 17th century. It also provided Shakespeare with the major source for his other Roman plays, Julius Caesar and Antony and Cleopatra. 'P

11 Coriolanus
The Rome of Coriolanus
@@@@( he action of Coriolanus is supposed to have taken place around 490 BC, during the Roman Republic which followed the fall of Tarquin the Proud, the last king of Rome, in about 507 BC. By this
__ time Rome was the powerbase of the most successful of several
tribes which made up what we now call Italy: to the North lay the empire of the Etruscans, and to South the rival tribe of the Volsci. Rome was already a substan?tial city but still centuries away from the seat of Imperial splendor it was to
become under the Caesars.
Roman society, as established by the Tarquins, was highly conservative and based on a class system of wealth and privilege, dominated by a few old landed families. This patrician class made up about onefifth of the population. The rest the plebeians were largely small farmers, traders and craftsmen, along with the servant class, foreigners and beggars.
In theory, every citizen was entitled to a say in the government of the city passing laws, electing magistrates, declaring war and so on guided by the advice of the Senate. In practice, of course, the plebeians had as little voice in the new Republic as under the tyrant kings. Power resided in the Senate, with its almost entirely patrician members, and especially in its two annually elected con?suls, who made policy, commanded the army and pronounced the death sentence.
In the early fifth century the plebeians secured a small victory against patri?cian dominance when, following a rebellion against enforced military service, they were rewarded by the establishing of a plebeian council which was to be led by two elected tribunes. These tribunes, however, were to take no part in govern?ment but act as intermediaries, in essence protecting the plebeians against excessive patrician control. ?

The Samurai
J he samurai were Japan s military aristocracy, and their heyday was the Age of Battles, or Warring States period (in Japanese called the Sengoku Jidai). For the vast majority, it was a class to be
__ born or legally adopted into. For some of the lesser families, like
the Oda of Owari, the nearly constant warfare was an opportunity to gain land p and power. For the older, aristocratic families, like the Takeda, it was a chance j to extend their control, but it was also a chance to settle ancient disputes, an occasion to be on guard against upandcoming families who wanted the rich, ancient fiefs for their own. WmmMmmM
For the children of the samurai, training for their martial way of life began early...particularly between the ages of seven and eight they were encouraged to be sociable and cooperative with their playmates, and discouraged from being confrontational or overly selfabsorbed.... By the time he was 13, he was ready f to fight: more than one famous daimyo fought in his first engagement at this
age.... Samurai were expected to prize personal honor, scorn hardship, cultivate '
selfcontrol and despise wealth. They were expected to seek death before dishonor. Those who did surrender could only expect torture and then slaughter at the hands of the victor. Many took their own lives on the battlefield rather than accept
such a fate, mmimmm
I For the most part a line had been drawn across Japan's social structure. fIf Those above it were samurai, armed and privileged. Those below it were com?moners, who were neither their social nor their political equals....

Communist Party of India (CPI)
Formed on December 26, 1925 by militant national?ists, the CPI was not legalized until 1942. The forma?tion of the party was inspired by the success of the Russian Communists and the frustration that followed Gandhi's cancellation of the noncooperation move?ment in 1922. The Party demanded full independence for India and redistribution of land to the workers.
Congress Party
The oldest Indian political party was formed in 1885 by Englishspeaking urban Indian intellectuals who wanted more sway over British rule. By 1907 the party had split: the moderate group wanted dominion status for India, the militant group demanded selfrule. In 1920 the party, led by Gandhi, began a twoyear cam?paign of passive resistance against British rule. Since independence, the Congress Party has held power more often than any other party.
Connaught Place ,..,

A circle of colon?naded buildings was completed by 1930 as a compro?mise between opposing calls for a western or oriental style for this landmark, announced in 1911 to cele?brate the coronation of King George V. Designed by Robert Tor Russell, but he unusually employed Indian contractors to build it.

Sanjay Gandhi
The eldest son of Indira Gandhi. Although he never occupied a constitutional post, Sanjay was given powers by his mother during the National Emergency.

Also known as the First World War. An international conflict lasting from 1914 to 1918 in which the Allies (Britain, France, Russia, Italy, Japan and eventually the US) defeated the Central Powers (Germany, AustriaHungary and Turkey).

Kashmir itself was divided between India and Pakistan in 1949, but many Muslims were left on the Indianadministered side of the hotlydisputed Line of Control. Islamic guerrillas are still fighting to secure either Kashmir's independence or its unifica?tion with Pakistan.
Battle of Lahore
India responded to Pakistani incursions into Indianadministered Kashmir in September 1965 by attack?ing Lahore in Pakistan with ground troops and from the air. This move intensified the fighting in this sec?ond IndoPakistani war, which ended in a UNspon?sored ceasefire just over two weeks later.

Untouchables Traditional Hindu society was organized in a strict class or caste system. The untouchables were the lowest of the castes, performing tasks regarded as polluting.

However, Dalits, as they are now known, are becoming an increasingly powerful political force.

This roundtable discussion moves between the way "we" were in Elizabeth I's age and in a postwar moment verging on the reign of a second Elizabeth. This panel will explore the cultural and theatrical con?texts for Merry Wives, paying particular attention to the meanings of community, class, and consumer (or material) culture. Moreover, it will expand upon their theatrical recreations in a complex play that antici?pates London's citizen comedy but is located in a provincial English town populated by residents and visitors from the court, among them Shakespeare's most famous comic creation, Falstaff.

Immediately preceding the Salman Rushdie public :__ interview with Ashutosh Varshney, this interdepart?mental panel is moderated by Ralph Williams (UM English Language and Literature). The panel discussion will deal with the themes shared by all three RSC plays, namely issues of class and the appropriation of culture. Discussants include Simon Gikandi (UM English Language and Literature), David Potter (UM Classical Studies), Glenda Dickerson (UM World Performance Studies) Steven Mullaney (UM English Language and Literature), Sadia Abbas (UM English Language and Literature), Martin Walsh (UM Residential College Drama Concentration) and members of the Royal Shakespeare Company.
Two of the three plays of the residency of the Royal Shakespeare Company this season move radi?cally across cultural divides, either in their own nature or in production Rushdie's Midnight's Children presents in English the crossings of Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Indian, British, and European cul?tures. Director David Farr sets his Roman Coriolanus in Samurai Japan. The third play sets the decora of Elizabethan England against the England of the period immediately after WWII. The question: to what extent can the values of one culture and era be translated into another cultural context, with other decora, and retain their power, authenticity, and per?tinence Can there be "global theatre" The discus?sion should be exciting to anyone who wishes to consider the terms of our engagement with cultures other than our own immediate and local one(s) and should illuminate the achievements of these productions. .f ........

Although Mr. Rushdie is well known for his liter?ary works, he is also a thoughtful and opinionated observer in many other areas of inquiry.

297 minDirected by Govind Nihalani (India), Hindi Part I: Saturday, March 1, 6:3010:00 pm. Part II: Saturday, March 8, 6:3010:00 pm, Natural Science Auditorium Based on a story by Bhisham Sahni, himself a refugee from West Punjab (subsequently Pakistan), Tamas was an important TV miniseries in the mid1980s. The series defied the collective amnesia about the parti?tion of the subcontinent into which popular culture had lapsed. The success of the TV miniseries may be ascribed to the fact that it facilitated the creation of a "healing" domestic space (where TV is usually viewed) wherein the trauma and guilt of immigrant families could be revisited after the repressive silence of four decades.

The Royal Shakespeare Company
I he Royal Shakespeare Company is one of the world's bestknown theatre ensembles. The Company is widely regarded as one of the ' most important interpreters of Shakespeare and other dramatists. ;
______Today the RSC is at the leading edge of classical theatre, with an ;
international reputation for artistic excellence, accessibility and high quality Live ?? performance. The mission of the Royal Shakespeare Company is to create out standing theatre relevant to our times through the work of Shakespeare, other Renaissance dramatists, and international and contemporary writers. Every year .
the Company plays to a million theatregoers at 2,000 performances, including over 50 weeks of UK and international touring. We want to give as many people as possible, from all walks of life, a richer and fuller understanding and enjoyment .of language and theatre. Through education and outreach programs we continually strive to engage people with the experience of live performance. .--:--
The RSC's touchstone is the work of William Shakespeare. There is a committment to presenting the widest range of Shakespeare's plays and demon?strating thorough performance the international and enduring appeal of his plays. There is also a desire to inspire contemporary writers with the ambition of the Renaissance stage, presenting new plays alongside classical theatre.
The Company's roots in StratforduponAvon stretch back to the 19th century. However, since the 1960s, the RSC's work in Stratford has been comple?mented by a regular presence in London. But Stratford and London are only part of the story. Over 25 years of residency in the city of NewcastleuponTyne have forged a profound link between RSC artists and audi?ences in the northeast of England. Many productions also visit major regional theatres around Britain. Annual regional tours set up their own travelling audi torium in community centers, sport halls and schools in towns throughout the UK without access to profes?sional theatre. While the UK is the home of the
Company, the RSC's audiences are global. The company regularly plays to enthusiastic theatregoers in other parts of Europe, across the US, the Americas, Asia and Australasia. The RSC is proud of its relationships with partnering organizations in other countries, particular?ly the US. Despite continual change, the RSC today is still at heart an ensemble Company. The continuation of this great tradition informs the work of all members of the Company. Directors, actors, dramatists and the?atre practitioners all collaborate in the creation of the RSC's distinctive and unmistakable approach to theatre.
These productions of Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor and Coriolanus, and Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children, mark the Royal Shakespeare Company's second residency at the University of Michigan. The Company made its UMS debut in March 2001 in three complete cycles of Shakespeare's History Plays, which included Henry VI, parts I, II and III and Richard III. .j.i."....

RSC Stuff L
partnership between a great public university and one of the world's leading the?atre companies clearly has its sights set high. Yet the synergy that has emerged between the Royal Shakespeare Company, the University of Michigan and the 8 .University Musical Society constantly surprises and inspires. For the RSC, it is a 1 relationship to be truly proud of.
The 2003 Michigan residency is the second component in a unique fiveyear relationship between the RSC and the University of Michigan and the University Musical Society. The joint ; venture was launched in March 2001 with Shakespeare's Henry VI, parts i, ii and Hi and Richard III, directed by the RSC's new artistic director, Michael Boyd.
Work on stage is only part of the story. As in 2001, educational, community and outreach work are a crucial part of the mix. Cultural events on campus in Ann Arbor and throughout southeast Michigan reach out to diverse communities, allowing them to engage fully in the fruits of the residency.
Based in the Warwickshire town where Shakespeare was born and died, the RSC's touch?stone remains the dramatic writing of the world's leading dramatist. But the work of the RSC ' is crucially about maintaining a live theatre tradition, revisioning the work of Shakespeare as contemporary for successive generations. An important part of this process is inspiring today's artists to respond to Shakespeare as performers and other theatre artists, but also as writers, scholars and creators of new work.
The RSCMichigan relationship reflects the natural links between the worlds of learning ?? and theatre, creating a partnership that is clearly worth more than the sum of its parts. Ever ?{ since Peter Brook worked closely with Professor Jan Kott on the idea of Shakespeare as our contemporary in the early 1960s, the modern RSC has enjoyed a close and productive relation?ship with the students and teachers in universities. With the Michigan partnership the RSC has opened an exciting new chapter taking the relationship between theatre and learning
ill never forget the welcome the RSC received when my own productions of Shakespeare's enry VI trilogy and Richard III came to Michigan in 2001. Midwestern hospitality and arinth is now legendary in SlralforduponAvon. Since then our relationship has matured id developed a shining example of what s possible when artists and scholars work together. i To be partnered with one of the world's great public universities is an honor and an hiralion in itself. We return after two years with a program that on the face of it couldn't ; more different from our 2001 tetralogy. But wait. Are Rushdie's searing account of India s Irtition, and Shakespeare's dissection of civil strife in Rome all that far away from the nglish world of Henry VI and Richard III Comic relief is at hand with Merry Hires, the iDtlicr of all situation comedy, and resolutely optimistic on issues of sexual arid social division. . At the heart of the RSCUMUMS relationship is a profound mutual commitment to ie connectedness of creativity and learning. The significant program of education and mimunily work that we've created with our partners at LM and UMS is what makes these sits more than just a season of plays. I think of it as more a festival of learning and making t at the same time. Michael Boyd, Artistic Director Designate
