Petrushka - Sources and Contexts

In this groundbreaking book, four distinguished scholars offer a detailed exploration of the ballet Petrushka, which premiered in Paris in 1911 and became one of the most important and influential theatrical works of the modernist period. The first book to study every level of a complex theatrical production, this is a work unlike any other in Russian or theater studies.

"The book is a joy to read." --Slavic Review
