The Storm is a drama in five acts by Aleksandr Ostrovskii (1823-1886) bringing dramatic realism to the Russian theatre stage. This play, one of his best-known, offers a meticulously portrayed image of the Russian society of his time, focusing on the morals and manners of the newly emerging merchant class. It was extremely popular during his lifetime and remains an integral part of the Russian theatrical repertoire. This representation in colour lithography by Viktor Goppe is his interpretation of this classical drama as performed in his hometown Kineshma.
