The premiere of the performance took place in 1941, in the middle of prewar season. It was one of the first independent works of Alexandra Remizova. By the internal fullness and professional power of the first of her productions one can judge about the significance of this directorial talent. The leading roles in the production were played by Osvald Glazunov and Tsetsilia Mansurova. And yet the performance lived a short life — the actor and director of the theatre Osvald Glazunov was arrested at the very beginning of the war.
A. I. Remizova managed to reopen the performance only in 1954 with Mikhail Astangov in the leading role. The performance with him became history. But many people looked back at Osvald — Glazunov. The role of Inken Peterson in 1954 was played by Ludmila Tselikovksaya.
Premiere was on 3 February 1941
