BILIBIN, IVAN YAKOVLOVICH, et al, illustrators.
Group of four theater programs from the Silver Age. Cover designs after Bilibin, ALEKSANDR GOLOVIN and BORIS ZVORIKIN for Dukhovnoe pesnopenie (Spiritual Psalms), March 14, 1910; Théatre de l'Hermitage (January 24 and 31, 1903); and Bolshoi Theatr (February 10, 1910). Various sizes. Some soiling and other wear.

The 1910 programme of liturgical music included works by Beethoven and Bach. The Golovin programmes are for performances of Berlioz's opera Les Troyens à Carthage, the ballet Ruse d'amour (choreographed by Petipa) and N. Ostrovskii's comedy Volki i ovtsy (Wolves and Sheep). The bill at the Bolshoi Theatr was a benefit to aid flood victims in France and featured Rimsky-Korsakov's opera Sadko.
