The Moscow Art Theatre by Nick Worrall( )

18 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and Japanese and held by 1,358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unprecedented in its comprehensiveness, The Moscow Art Theatre fills a large gap in our knowledge of Stanislavsky and his theatre. Worrall focuses in particular detail on four of The Moscow Art Theatre's best-known productions: * Tolstoy's Tsar Fedor Ioannovich * Gorky's The Lower Depths * Chekov's The Cherry Orchard * Turgenev's A Month in the Country
Modernism to realism on the Soviet stage : Tairov-Vakhtangov-Okhlopkov by Nick Worrall( Book )

12 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first book to deal with the work of three important Soivet theatre directors - Alexander Tairov, Evgeni Vakhtangov and Nikolai OkHlopkov - who, although familiar names in the West, are not often the subjects of full-length studies. The present one therefore sets out to introduce their work to theatre specialists and non-specialists alike, analyzing individual productions and placing them within the context of their time. The active working life of the three directors spans, in varying stages, the period of revolution and civil war with its accompanying radical artistic innovations; the conservative phase of socialist realism in the 1930s and 1940s; and the more flexible and creative artistic years of the late 1950s and 1960s. The book contains a number of photographs of the original productions as well as a chronology of theatrical and historical events. Worrall's study will be of interest to students and scholars of Russian studies and theatre history

A doll's house by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The slamming of the front door at the end of Ibsen's electrifying play shatters the romantic masquerade of Nora and Torvald's marriage. In their stultifying and infantilised relationship, they have deceived themselves and each other into thinking they are happy. But Nora's concealment of a loan she had to take out for her husband's sake forces their frivolous conversation to an irrevocable crisis, until Nora claims her right to individual freedom. Ibsen's 1879 play shocked its first audiences with its radical insights into the social roles of husband and wife. His portrayal of his flawed heroine, Nora, remains one of the most striking dramatic depictions of late-nineteenth century woman. This version is translated by Michael Meyer, and was first performed in 1964 at the Playhouse, Oxford

The Sea gull = Chaika : a comedy in four acts by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov( Book )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2015 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chekhov called The Sea Gull a comedy, and perhaps it is, if you're watching at some great Olympian distance from the cares, sorrows, hopes, and joys of human life. For mortals, however, this play stands as the incarnation of all the dreams and despair, the almost unbearable exhilaration and the truly unbearable anguish, that is the essence of youth. The Sea Gull is the sharpest, the most achingly bittersweet, of Chekhov's great plays
The three sisters by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov( Book )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The play focuses on the lives of three sisters, Olga, Masha, and Irina, young women of the Russian gentry who try to fill their days in order to construct a life that feels meaningful while surrounded by an array of military men, servants, husbands, suitors, and lovers, all of whom constitute a distractions from the passage of time and from the sisters' desire to return to their beloved Moscow

The inspector general : a satiric farce in three acts by Nikolaĭ Vasilʹevich Gogolʹ( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this classic satire on human vanity, the corrupt, self-seeking officials of a small town in Tsarist Russia mistake a penniless clerk from Moscow for a government inspector. Through the wild inventiveness of Gogol's comic fantasy the play becomes a celebration of the grotesque and absurd elements in human nature and remains one of the great comedies of all time." "As well as the complete text of the play itself, the volume contains a chronology of the playwright's life and work, an introduction giving the background to the play, a discussion of the various interpretations, and notes on individual words and phrases in the text."--BOOK JACKET
