Drawing of stage configuration for The Strange Adventure of E. T. A. Hoffmann

From The Director's Prism: E. T. A. Hoffmann and the Russian Theatrical Avant-Garde by Dassia N. Posner

Info

  • Drawing of the forestage, side entrances, and closed curtain decorated with running deer for Derzhavin’s production of The Strange Adventure of E. T. A. Hoffmann.

    Yutkevich saw this production a few months after joining the Eccentrics and a month after it became clear that Columbine’s Garter was not going to be produced. His intense criticism of Strange Adventure is steeped in his far more radical idea of what the new theater should be.
