Summary

The final chapter discusses Bandmann’s legacy and his rapid disappearance from the theatre-historical record. It argues that Bandmann’s reliance on heterophilic networks had a detrimental effect on his long-term legacy and place in theatre-historical memory. The only existing testimony to his cultural memory is the Royal Opera House in Mumbai, which because of its recent renovation has led to a resurgence of interest in the building and by association with Bandmann in India. The chapter also explores how former Bandmann employees maintained parts of his network after his premature death in 1922 and were instrumental in supporting the careers of Indian dancers such as Uday Shankar and Menaka. The final section discusses the research methods and journeys that lie beyond a ten-year research project, emphasizing the importance of digitized resources such as historical newspapers.
