Anyone have any idea who "M. Jersen" may have been? (also, is the title on the cover in Russian? It doesn't seem to say "... from the North Country" - maybe in early 20th-century Russian... - oh- Ole from Nordlanda...) - Schissel
In 1928, revived at the Bolshoi Theater by its director Vladimir Leonardovich (Knipper) Nardov (1876–1942) (as Russian Wikipedia (Nardov's article) puts it, its first appearance on the Soviet (post-1917) stage.)
