Catalogue Note

Wolves and Sheep is a five-act comedy by Alexander Ostrovsky, satirising the mores of 19th century Russian society. The play tells the story of Evlampia Kupavina, a young widow and chatelaine of a country estate who is pursued by various predatory characters who are after her money. The narrative is loosely based on the story of a real court case involving the Abbess Mitrofania (1825-1899) who was sued for fraud in 1874. Pimenov executed the set and costume designs for the Maly Theatre revival of Wolves and Sheep which premiered on 6 March 1941.
