Peter Brook, British theater director, was 97 years old

-

Peter Brook, the British theater director and screenwriter, died yesterday at the age of 97 in Paris. Brook had lived in France since 1974. This is what ‘Le Monde’ reveals. Regarded as one of the greatest masters of the twentieth century, Brook was born in London on March 21, 1925 to Jewish parents who immigrated from Latvia, which was then part of the Russian Empire. His father, Simon, a young rebel belonging to the Menshevik party, had to go into exile in 1907, accompanied by his very young wife, Ida. The couple studied in Paris and Liege before fleeing Belgium for England in 1914 with the arrival of the German army. The Russian family name, which was pronounced Bryck, was twisted into Brouck in its transcription by the French administration, before becoming Brook upon arrival in England. Russian culture, the French newspaper recalls, has remained strongly etched in his family. This bond with Russia was therefore at the center of his meeting, in 1950, with his wife, actress Natasha Parry (1930-2015), also of Russian origin. They had two children: Simon and Irina. The daughter was named Irina in homage to the youngest of the heroines of Three Sisters, the theatrical play composed by Anton Chekhov. Irina Brook was director of the National Theater of Nice from 2014 to 2019. Peter Brook’s career was dazzling: his first theatrical direction arrives at the age of 21. At the age of 22 he signed his first show with Romeo and Juliet in the Shakespearean temple in Stratford-upon-Avon.
