This is the first comprehensive history of Russian theater in English since the fall of Communism. Written by an international team of experts, the book brings together the fruits of recent research into all areas of Russian theater history. Of particular interest will be the chapters written by senior Russian academics. The History covers the whole range of Russian dramatic experience, from puppet theater to ballet and grand opera. A key feature of the History is the collection of rare photographs, some published for the first time, chronicling the development of Russian theater.
