A Feast in Time of Plague

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A Feast in Time of Plague (Russian: «Пир во время чумы», translit. Pir vo vremya chumy) is an 1830 play by Aleksandr Pushkin. The plot concerns a banquet in which the central figure taunts death with a toast "And so, O Plague, we hail thy reign!". The story is based on Act 1 of John Wilson's play "The City of Plague".

The play was published in 1830 as one of four Little Tragedies (Malenkie tragedii Russian: Маленькие трагедии) together with The Stone Guest (Kamenny gost Russian: Каменный гость); Mozart and Salieri (Motsart i Salyeri Russian: Моцарт и Сальери) and <i>The Miserly Knight</i> (Skupoy rytsar Russian: Скупой рыцарь). All four of these plays were set as one act operas by Russian composers; Dargomyzhsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Rachmaninov, and for the Feast, Cesar Cui.
