The two versions of Stravinsky's Pétrouchka constitute separate and parallel incarnations of one of the cardinal masterworks of 20th-century music. Arguably the 1911 original version is the work of a greater showman: it remains a supreme work of the theatre, while the 1947 score is essentially aimed at concert performance.
This corrected edition allows informed comparison for the first time. The original engraving has been checked against the manuscript, modern orthography has been applied to the Russian stage directions, and complete English and German reference translations of the stage directions are provided.
