30.09.2014 Presentation of the Eugene Znosko-Borovskys book Russian Theater in the Early 20th Century 


On October 2, 2014, Presentation of the Eugene Znosko-Borovskys book Russian Theater in the Early 20th Century will take place at the Tsars Lobby of the Alexandrinsky Theater. 

Eugene A. Znosko-Borovsky (1884, Pavlovsk 1954, Paris) is a character of the Silver Century.  He was one of the key figures in the editors board of the Appolon Magazine. He was a critic and dramatist; Vsevolod Meyerhold had directed A Converted Prince after his play.  He was a friend of Gumilev and his second in the duel with Voloshin. In emigration, he was observer of Paris outlets where he had been writing about films, poetry, and theater, both in Russia and French.  Russian Theater in the Early 20th Century,  a book which laconically and clearly depicts the Russian theater from its timid sources up to unbelievable rise, is marked with a rare talent to interpret complex phenomena with no vulgarization but clarification of the gist.  After nearly a century since it had been written, it remains an exemplary introduction to the subject.  Published in the meager number of copies in Prague in 1925, the book has been reprinted for the first time since; it includes an introductory article by Eugene Sokolinsky giving modern readers some necessary landmarks; detailed notes, and an appendix with comments and four essays of this unfairly sunk into oblivion author.   Tsars Lobby; 15:00
