- Scene design for Four Harlequins with a generous forestage, onstage balconies, and bridge arches beyond which the canals of Venice can be glimpsed.
Four Harlequins was performed in Saint Petersburg by Italian players in 1733. The comedy was published in Vladimir N. Peretts, Italianskiia komedii i intermedii predstavlennyia pri dvorie imperatritsy Anny Ioannovny v 1733–1735 (Petrograd: Imperatorskaia Akademiia Nauk, 1917), 99–106. Other works from Peretts’s collection with which Eisenstein experimented include The Honest Courtesan and Amusements on the Water and in a Field.
