The Moscow Art Theater

“Eisenstein's work as a designer for Red Army travelling agit-theatre groups at the front during the civil war can be seen as a further consequence of this change of direction. After designing and directing productions at the Proletkult Theatre in 1920, he became a student at Meyerhold's Directors' Workshop in Moscow and, between 1921 and 1922, attended rehearsals and performances of Nora (Meyerhold's version of Ibsen's A Doll's House), Crommelynck's The Magnificent Cuckold and Sukhovo-Kobylin's Tarelkin's Death, acting as personal assistant to the director in the case of the last-mentioned production.”
“On the 20th of April 1922, having rehearsed with a scratch cast of actors for less than a week, Meyerhold mounted a production (his fifth version) of Ibsen's "Nora". (A Doll's House). The performance took place at the Actors' Theatre in Moscow…”

“Another playwright whom Nemirovich-Danchenko championed was Henrik Ibsen. In the 1890s, while he was the drama instructor at the Moscow Philharmonic School, Nemirovich-Danchenko had been the first director to successfully stage Ibsen's work in Russia when he produced A Doll’s House. Now, at the influential Moscow Art Theatre, he produced Ibsen's plays in succession: When We Dead Awaken in 1900, Pillars of Society in 1903, Brand in 1906, Rosmersholm in 1908, and Hedda Gabler.”
