Peter Brook’s legacy is everywhere in today’s theatre


When I first encountered Peter Brook, in 2010, he was not so much hero as legend: guru, shaman, magus, maestro. But Brook’s ability to conjure a gleaming theatrical image – collaborating since the mid-1970s with his trusted lieutenant, Marie-Hélène Estienne – was unparalleled. Virgile Frannais and William Nadylam in Peter Brook’s production of A Magic Flute at the Barbican. But for anyone to maintain a 70-year-plus career in the theatre, let alone one that changed directions as often as Brook’s did, is astonishing. They helped change the face – and faces – of theatre for good, and infuse inward-facing British theatre with a sense of continental elan.
