Premiere of “The Lady of the Camellias” at State Meyerhold Theatre
It is thought that the director created this production specially for his beloved wife Zinaida Reich. Many admirers of Meyerhold were surprised that there was nothing avant-garde in the play. It was notable for its exquisite beauty and seemed to celebrate the bourgeois way of life. The stage was full of many genuine antiques - vases, furniture, candlesticks, and fans. The best artists of Moscow visited the performance more than once.
