This Collection of theater periodicals provides a detailed picture of metropolitan and provincial Russian theater , and reflects the cultural life in Russia at the turn of the 20th century. These periodicals contain sharp-tongued articles, reviews, theater repertoires, librettos, documentary materials, announcements and advertisements. The publications did not limit themselves simply to covering social issues, but also dealt with professional problems, such as the relationship between theaters and their sponsors, or the poor living conditions endured by provincial actors. This collection of theater periodicals is a unique source for a wide range of scholars in the fields of history, cultural studies, theater history and sociology, and provides a unique opportunity to savour the distinctive atmosphere of the period revered as Russia’s Silver Age.
