1887 m.


One of the earliest surviving artifacts of the Yiddish theater, this fragment of a cover from a playbill for Abraham Goldfaden's Yiddish operetta Bar Kochba may date from the 1880s. Goldfaden is known as the "father of Yiddish theater" for having staged the first modern Yiddish plays. Most likely, there wasn't a real lion in any of the play's productions, despite the illustration!
Vienas anksčiausių jidiš teatro artefaktų –Abraomo Goldfadeno operetės Bar Kochba (1883 arba 1885) programos viršelio fragmentas. A. Goldfadenas yra žinomas kaip „jidiš teatro tėvas“, nes pastatė pirmąsias šiuolaikines pjeses jidiš kalba. Labiausiai tikėtina, nė viename spektaklyje nebuvo gyvo liūto, nors iliustracijoje jis ir vaizduojamas!
