Svend Borberg: Punktummet, der ikke blev sat: Uopdagede værker fra en dramatiker med europæisk udsyn

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


This article focuses on two hitherto undiscovered, unrealized works by one of the most remarkable and controversial Danish playwrights and theatre critics from the interwar period, Svend Borberg. Borberg was a rare modernist and an internationally oriented voice in Danish theatre, The two works, the biblical comic opera Susanna and the pantomimic ballet, Stambul brænder [Stambul Burning] add not only an important missing link in Borberg’s oeuvre, but also to our knowledge of the works of his collaborators, the composers Knudåge Riisager and Alexander Tscherepnin.
