"The 'Union of Youth' sponsored four performances of futurist works in the Luna Park in St. Petersburg. Two of them were performances of Mayakovsky's tragedy Valdimir Mayakovsky, and the other two, on December 3 and 5, were of Kruchenykh's opera Pobeda na solntsem (Victory over the Sun). Proving to be the sensation of the season, both production played to full houses despite exorbitant prices" (Markov). BEL EXEMPLAIRE. Rowell-Wye, n° 37; Markov, Russian Futurism, p.142.
