"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."
