n.— «“Haltura” is a word which has been used frequently by the Russian actor during Bolshevism and signifies an extra job on the outside of his own theatre. The “haltura” apparitions are staged without any artistic aims, and interest the actor only as a means by which he can earn an extra few million rubles. » —“Off Stage and Us Again” by Nikita Balieff New York Times Magazine June 24, 1923.
