Büchse der Pandora (1904) written by Frank Wedekind and produced with Karl Kraus? as Schigolch in 1905
A scene from Die Büchse der Pandora (Pandora's Box, 1904) written by the German playwright Frank Wedekind (1864 - 1918) and produced with Karl Kraus? as Schigolch. The premiere of this play, a restricted performance due to difficulties with the censor, took place in Nuremberg on February 1, 1904. The 1905 Viennese premiere, again restricted, was instigated by the satirist Karl Kraus. In Vienna Lulu was played by Tilly Newes, later to become Wedekind's wife, with the part of Jack the Ripper played by Wedekind himself.
