Biographical/historical: The strelʹtsy were Russia's first professional military corps, created by the czar Ivan the Terrible in the 1550s. In the 1680s they began to rebel against Peter the Great, who ultimately disbanded them. The Italian choreographer Salvatore Viganò used the story of their revolt as the plot of his ballet Gli Strelizzi, first performed in Venice in 1809, with scenery by Alessandro Sanquirico. The theme was subsequently treated by choreographers Alessandro Fabbri (1820), Salvatore Scarpa (1822), Giuseppe Villa (1830), and possibly others.
Biographical/historical: Mauro Berti designed sets for a number of stage productions in Bologna, Italy, in the 1820s.
