Looking for help with Picture(s) and/or Captions
« on: March 01, 2005, 05:04:00 PM »
I think this a pic of Nicholas & Ella.
There is a caption at the bottom, but it's in Russian!
Can someone translate it?
Thanks!
Angie

It translates to "Tsesarevich Nikolai Aleksandrovich and Grand Duchess Elizaveta Fedorovna 1886"

Probably taken at a staged production put on by the IF for their own enjoyment.

It looks like one of the  pictures when they were in a play. I have seen  other pictures with them in that dress. Was it a Eugene Onegin  Play(think I spelled his name wrong,but you get who I'am talking about).

I have seen pictures of Nicholas and Ella as Onegin and Tatiana from Eugene Onegin, as well, but their costumes were different than those in the posted photo.

I'm not sure which play, assuming that we are correct in our guess, this photo would be from.  The costumes look a little odd to me, only because Nicholas' appears to be evocative of the mid-1600s, while Ella's seems to represent an era of at least 50 years later (if not more).

Its the Ella one that I've seen before, will have to look at some books and try to find it.But I know I've seen it before. I think she and Nicholas were standing in the picture.

Probably seventeen or eighteen, since in 1884 he was sixteen.  The picture is dated 1886, so I guess we'll just add two years.  Of course it depends on what month it was taken.  I hope that answers your question.

It was a ball on the 6th may 1888 (Nicholas's birthday). Guests have to dress as "mousquetaires" for the men and as lady of the 18th century (in white) for the women. But I can't remember where the ball took place... I will chek in my books...
Here are Nicholas and Elisabeth Mavrikievna


The Eugene Oneguine play (After Pushkin) took place in 1890. Ella played Tatiana Larina and Nicholas Eugene:

I have found another group photo wearing the same costumes in the Zoya Belyakov's book " The Romanovs, the way it was"
According to her it was " theatrical performance at the Sergievsly Palace 1888. Theatricals, tableau , charades and costume balls in the Serigievsky Palace were also a great success. A unique photograph from 1888, featuring 23 individuals , has survivied  to the present day. It shows costume ball or an amateur performance,very much in the fashion of many of the aristocratic salons of that era."

Yes,this group-shot is great! I like it much! Esp. Ella's looks.
