AULAEUM: An archaic term for the curtain -- primarily the main curtain, grand drape, or "house curtain" separating the audience from the stage.

The art of the theatre. Stages, sets, costumes, backdrops, props, concept sketches, curtains, production photos, and anything else having to do with live performance.

Caesar:
Who is it in the press that calls on me?
I hear a tongue shriller than all the music
Cry “Caesar!” Speak, Caesar is turn’d to hear.

Soothsayer:
Beware the ides of March.

Caesar:
What man is that?

Brutus:
A soothsayer bids you beware the ides of March.

Julius Caesar (I.ii.15–19)

by William Shakespeare
