Promotional programme for the 1921 tour of Nikita Baileff's revue, La Chauve-Souris to London. The Bat, as it was known in English was named after Die Fledermaus and was created in a basement near the Moscow Art Theatre at the beginning of the 20th Century. The theatre group performed songs, sketches and dances in Moscow until the Revolution forced the troupe into exile. This, however, did not halt their success as their performances in Paris and the USA were hugely popular throughout the 1920s.
