Wedekind's Spring's Awakening at the Kammerspiele, Berlin, in 1906. Melchoir is expelled from school, with Berhard von Jacobi as Melchior and design by Karl Walser

"It was written sometime between autumn 1890 and spring 1891, but did not receive its first performance until 20 November 1906 when it premiered at the Deutsches Theater in Berlin under the direction of Max Reinhardt. It carries the sub-title A Children's Tragedy. The play criticises the sexually oppressive culture of nineteenth century (Fin de siècle) Germany and offers a vivid dramatisation of the erotic fantasies that it breeds. Due to its controversial subject matter, the play has often been banned or censored."
