Abstract:

"Laurence Senelick is supremely qualified to compile this historical dictionary. The result, authoritative and astute in its selection of details (including a wonderful bibliography), is up to the moment in its coverage."

Despite government interference and control, Russian theater has produced many memorable playwrights, schools of thought, and plays with worldwide influence. Nikolai Gogol"s The inspector, Maksim Gor'kii's The Lower Depths, and Anton Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard remain staples of repertoires in every language. The ideas of Konstantin Stanislavskii, Vsevolod Meierkhol'd, and Mikhail Chekhov continue to inspire actors and directors. Designers stitl draw on the graphics of the World of Art group and the Constructivists.

The A to Z of Russian Theater is the first and only reference work in English devoted exclusively to Russian theater and drama. It provides information on popular plays and playwrights and offers details about many people, works, and phenomena omitted from standard encyclopedias. Through a chronology an introductory essay, a. bibliography,, an appendix, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries: on directors, stage designers, actors, plays, playwrights, concepts, theater buildings, and troupes, this book provides an unrivaled account of Russian theater. --Book Jacket.
