High Noon Curator Talk
"The Aleksandrinskii Stage"
Walter Zvonchenko, Music Division
With a spotlight on Vsevelod Meyerhold’s staging at the Aleksandrinskii Theater in Saint Petersburg of Molière’s Dom Juan in 1910 and of Mikhail Lermontov’s Maskarad in 1917, this talk focuses on the productions’ radical departures in movement and in the stage design of Aleksander Golovin, emphasizing an intense theatricalism that contrasted in every way with the realism of Konstantin Stanislavskii.
