Meyerhold: 1 2 3 4

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 Pierrot’s costume as sketched, most likely, by Fedor Komissarzhevsky.
