That is a great picture. Who else was in the production ?

The play "Tsar Boris"  was staged in January 1890, at the Hermitage Theatre. The other Romanov, who took part in the performance was GD Pavel, he played Prince Christian of Denmark. Other actors were Sergei's aide-de-camps, GDss Elizaveta's ladies-in-waiting.
The same year Elizaveta and future Nicholas II played Tatiana and Onegin.

It seems that both Serge & Ella shared a lot of theater and acting on stage.

You're welcome. It was new for me too, and hopefully I can locate a larger and better copy soon.

And a priceless shot - GD Sergei and some of his gentlemen (friends) swimming in the Moscow river.

Most likely Eric.

I've never been to Russia and dreams of the day I'll be able to, so I'm asking this question - how cold is the Moscow River during the hottest month of the year?
Is it shockingly cold or cold like here in VA, USA during August?

Thank you for the answer :)

It was quite usual for men to swim in the nude then, at any rate when there were no ladies about.


And even when there were ladies about. Olga Alexandrovna tells as nice tale of how she and her father and Mikhail would quite often come across soldiers swimming in the nude when walking in the park at Gatchina. On sighting the Tsar, there would be a mad rush to get out of the water and grab their caps, so that they could fall in and give a smart salute - wearing nothing else!
