" Q: How many reconstructions have you done now?
A: Beauty, Bayadère, Coppélia, Flore, Petrushka, Carnaval. Fokine wrote that one down in Russian words and I had to decode those words, not notation."
I've never been quite clear as to how the Fokine works that lived in Soviet Russia were staged and maintained.
A most unfamiliar-looking version of Fokine's PETROUCHKA was shown by the Bolshoi Ballet in NYC in 1990.
the attached scan of Yaroslav Sekh as Petrouchka is dated 1965 - i cannot state for certain that this is from a would-be staging of Fokine's ballet, or if there is a link between this photo card and ballet as shown in 25 years hence in NYC.
a Russian reference book i have notes that Stravinsky's PETROUCHKA entered the Bolshoi Ballet repertory in 1921 in a staging by Ryabstev, which I suppose might be this one in which Sekh is pictured.
