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.
