“Vasilisa the Beautiful” / A Russian Fairytale

This performance video arises from the meetings of the Fairytale Group during the summer of 2022. The Fairytale Group is an initiative arising from the ongoing work and meetings of the Section for the Literary Arts and Humanities. The Fairytale Group meetings are facilitated by Section member Marion Donehower.

The Fairytale Group meets twice monthly, usually on the porch overlooking the garden. It is presently closed to new participants. Contact Marion for more information.

This fairytale, Vasilisa the Beautiful, might be enjoyed as a companion to the essay on Beauty by Christiane Haid, an essay that appears concurrently on the website for summer of 2022.
