Plays that the children put on
« on: March 17, 2006, 11:27:47 PM »
 In this picture it looks like Christine Dae when she plays the maid in the 'Phantom of the Opera' movie. And Mashka looks like Captian Hook. But they a supposedly doing some sort of play.

Does anyone else have pictures of the plays that they put on? Or is this the only surviving one?

That was taken at Livadia in August 1912. It was a play in French, called Le bourgeois gentilhomme. That's the only photo of a play, as far as I know. (But I haven't seen 'em all, yet!)

According to Gilliard, there was some kind of performance in Spala in 1912, during Aleksei's attack of hemophilia.

Here's a thread about the plays they put on in Tobolsk:
Plays performed by the Imperial Family

Wasn't Anastasia's favourite book "The Millionaire Girl"? I read that it was a play. Perhaps she performed it.
