Today in History: Nutcracker premieres in St. Petersburg in 1892

125 years ago today, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker” premiered at the Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg. Although the original production was not a success, the 20-minute suite that Tchaikovsky extracted from the ballet was.

Today in History: Donald Brun born in 1909

Happy Birthday, Donald Brun! The Swiss graphic designer would have turned 108 today. Brun was born in Basel in 1909. During his apprenticeship as a graphic illustrator in the late 1920s, Brun celebrated his first successes as a poster artist when he won a Basel poster competition for “baths” in 1928. Between the 1930s and 1970s, Brun created hundreds of poster designs, mainly for consumer goods. Among his clients were such renowned companies as Bata, Bell, Gauloise, Persil or Swissair. His posters are marked by a subtle sense of humor and solid craftsmanship. In 1952, Brun became co-founder of the Alliance Graphique Internationale (AGI). He passed away in Clarens in 1999.
