Moscow Art Theatre Collection.
Collection Number: MC044
Sixty-two reproductions from photographs of early Moscow Art Theatre productions. Founded in 1898, the Moscow Art Theatre opened with Tolstoy's Tsar Feodor Ivanovich. This theatre was the first to successfully produce Chekhov's plays, and between 1898 and 1904 it performed The seagull, Uncle Vanya, The three sisters, and The cherry orchard, the plays upon which Chekhov's reputation primarily rests.
