Renaissance drama and classical theatre

Like in the classical theatre in order to give the idea of scenery only an object was put on the scene, and women weren’t allowed to act in plays so female roles were performed by boys, that were often 15-16 years old, because the voice hasn’t changed yet and could seem a female voice. But the three Aristotelian unities were not followed. In the Elizabethan theatre the bloody scene are performed on the stage, in opposition to the classical theatre, where these scenes were only told. A technique used in the Renaissance drama is the soliloquy, a speech said aloud by a character where the character expressed his thoughts, but he didn’t speak to someone and he’s not addressed to the audience. It was used because it was the only way to make the audience know the thoughts of the character, on the contrary in the Greek theatre there was a choir that expressed them.
