About this Item

Folio. Unpaginated. Original pictorial wrappers. Illustrated title-page. Rare work by the master of Constructivist Theatre, Alexander Tairov commemorating the 10th anniversary of the founding of the Kamerny Teatre (Chamber Theatre). It contains numerous photo-montages and photographic reproductions from scenes of some of the plays performed in Tairov's theatre during its first decade of existence, along with portraits of actors and caricatures. Some age wear on wrappers with spine partly chipped and worn and minor chipping and creasing along edges. Sporadic foxing throughout. Very minor age-toning along paper margin. Text in Russian. Wrappers in overall fair, interior in good to very good condition. Alexander Tairov (1885-1950) was one of the leading innovators of theatrical art, and one of the most enduring theatre directors in Russia, and through the Soviet era. He opened the Kamerny theatre (Chamber Theatre) in Moscow in 1914. Like Meyerhold, Tairov believed in emphasizing theater's theatrical elements, but unlike his more famous colleague, Tairov did not wish to break down barriers between stage and audience. Instead, his productions were meant to be theatrical spectacles, appreciated by a well-prepared audience. Tairov was fortunate to have his wife. Alisa Koonen, as collaborator and lead actress in practically all his productions. Tairov's two most famous pre-revolutionary productions were Innokenty Annensky's "Thamirys Kytharodos" (1916) and Oscar Wilde's "Salomé," both designed by Alexandra Exter. In 1921, Tairov stages one more production with designs by Exter, Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet." His most notable production of the early 20s, however, were Racine's "Phèdre" and Chesterton's "The Man Who Was Thursday," the latter in a constructivist set by Alexander Vesnin. In the mid-20s, Tairov concentrated primarily on western repertoire, including notable productions of Eugene O'Neil. Bookseller Inventory # 24951
