Unique piece of wartime entertainment ephemera, a 7" by 30" schedule poster/flyer/ticket order form for Sol Hurok's 1944 Russian Ballet "Fall Victory Season" at New York's Metropolitan Opera House, which ran from October 8 through November 5. Artists featured were many, including Massine, Gollner, Kaye, Laing, Chase, Hightower, Petroff, Karnilova, Romanoff, J. Reed, R. Reed, Tudor, Kriza, Alonso, Orloff, Robbins, Lang, Anton Dolin, Riabouchinska, Youskevitch, Lichine, Eglevsky, Argentinita, Pilar Lopez and Co. and Tamara Toumanova. Antal Dorati was the musical director and Mois Zlatin the associate director.

The flyer -- which is so long because it gives the detailed program of each scheduled performance as well as the ticket prices, running from $1.20 in the Family Circle to $4.20 in the Orchestra -- was printed on a type of inexpensive onion skin style paper in dark blue ink. This copy, as you can see from the full length photo, has some tears. A previous owner wrote some numbers on the back towards the bottom but this cannot be seen if the item were put on display.

Highly unlikely that there are many of these around, but I am keeping the price reasonable because of the wear and tear.
