See how our past productions of Much Ado About Nothing looked: John Barton's Raj-inspired 1976 production; Gregory Doran's 2002 production set in Sicily; and Marianne Elliott's 1950s Cuban themed production.

All productions of Shakespeare have one thing in common: the text. They can differ greatly because each text is open to interpretation and every director and their company makes different interpretative choices in the rehearsal room.

Here we delve into the RSC's archive to give you a snapshot of our creative process behind the productions. You can see previously-unseen production records, reviews, production and rehearsal photos to give you an insight of the depth of work that goes on behind the scenes of an RSC production.
