Alexander Blok wrote The
Puppet Show, the first of his "lyrical dramas"
in 1906. The play debuted at the end of that year at the Vera
Kommissarzhevskaia Theater in St. Petersburg by Vsevolod
Meyerhold who also played the role of Pierrot.
Sets and costumes were designed by Nikolai Sapunov, and the music
for the first production was composed by Mikhail Kuzmin.
Here we see the design for Pierrots
costume as sketched, most likely, by Fedor Komissarzhevsky.
