Description

We will explore the arts and life in Russia from the time of Peter the Great to the Russian Revolution. First, we will discuss the economy: the lives of the people in the cities and country and their education; then the artists and their art: architecture; Russian painting and the paintings in the Hermitage; writers, playwrights and poets such as Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Turgenev, Pushkin and Chekov; music, opera, ballet-Glinka, Borodin, Mussorgsky, Tchaikovsky, Petipa.

In this high-participation group everyone is expected to make a presentation and actively join in the discussion.
