Über diesen Titel


This is the first cross-cultural study of Chekhov's plays in production. Many now consider Chekhov a playwright equal to Shakespeare, and this book studies how the reputation evolved, and how the presentation of his plays varied and altered from their initial productions in Russia to the most recent postmodern deconstructions of them. Particular attention is given to the staging of Chekhov in Russia before and after the Revolution, and under different regimes; in the English-speaking world, in Western and Eastern Europe, as well as in Japan.


"...a valuable resource for the scholar and the artist. Useful in all academic and public collections, this book can also be profitably read as a study of the world's great stage directors and as a stage history of the international avant-garde in the 20th century." Choice

"...solid scholarship...thoroughly entertaining text.... All in all, Senelick has pulled another splendid rabbit out of his hat. ...for those interested in Chekhov's fate on the world stage." J. Douglas Clayton, The Russian Review

"The Chekhov Theatre, a wide-ranging summary of research conducted by Senelik [sic] and hundreds of other Chekhov scholars, is an indispensible volume. A bottomless source of information about the stage history of Chehkov's plays, it is presented in a clear, elegant and concise style. It definitely will be of great interest to stage directors and dramaturgs, Chehkov specialists, instructors and students of Russian literature, and, in general, to all those who love Chehkov and the theatre." Clara Hollosi, Canadian Slavonic Papers

"As tour de force the book is remarkable and the reader cannot fail to be impressed by the sheer amount of knowledge on display..." Slavic Review

"...timely and important..." Murray Biggs, Theater
