Rudolf Steiner's Mystery Dramas
Rudolf Steiner wrote four plays that follow the initiation journeys of a group of fictional characters through a series of lives. These plays were intended to be modern mystery plays. Steiner outlined the plot of a fifth play to be set at the Castalian spring at Delphi, but due to the outbreak of First World War, this remained an unfulfilled project.The titles of the completed plays are:
The Portal of Initiation - World premiere on 15 August 1910, at the Schauspielhaus in Munich.
The Trial of the Soul - World premiere on 17 August 1911, in the Gardener's Place Theatre in Munich.
The Guardian of the Threshold - World premiere on 24 August 1912, in the Gardener's Place Theatre in Munich.
The Soul's Awakening - World premiere on 22 August 1913, at the National Theatre in Munich.
