This is a theater program that included week stagings and illustrated with photographs of composer Sergey Prokofiev as well as theater actors.

Its cover design featuring sketch for Kamerny Theater production of a play ‘Day and Night’ produced by Stenberg brothers. Vladimir and Georgii Stenberg were the leading artists of this theater in 1924-1931 and designed overall twelve performances in the constructivist style. The play ‘Day and Night’ was premiered in 1926. It resembled a circus performance in acting and costumes: actors had loose, striped clothes and wigs. Stenberg brothers created a simple construction - a sloping platform with two ‘wings’ that stayed the same during the whole performance but suited each scene.
