This is the first complete compilation of all stage works (dramas, comedies, juvenile theater, puppet plays, pantomime, libretti for operas, operettas, and musicals) written in the German Democratic Republic since 1945. It provides biographic sketches for some 700 authors, as well as information on sources, composers, co-authors, pseudonyms, first performance data, and bibliographic material for about 3000 plays. English translations of all titles are provided, as is an alphabetical title index.
