Provenance: "Of special interest to the School of Music was the joint purchase by the Foundation and the Library of the 129-page manuscript of Igor Stravinsky's opera Mavra, composed in 1922. This work has a particular association with Illinois, because of its presentation by the Opera Workshop, under the direction of Soulima Stravinsky, son of the composer, during the 1952 Festival of Contemporary Arts [of the School of Music]" (from the 1952/1953 UI Library Annual Report).
Review by Emile Vuillermoz of first performance, Paris, dated 12 June 1922, tipped in.
