The selected fragments on this page are ordered following the chronology of the scenes in the novel and they are completed with images of the sources which Bugakov consulted and to which he refers, like the opera's Aïda of Giuseppe Verdi and Faust of Charles Gounod, and the vaudeville Lev Gurytsj Sinitsjkin of Dmitri Timofeyevich Lensky. You can also see some short animation movies like, for instance, Margarita, directed by Svetlana Petrova and Natalya Berezovaya.

You can use the menu on the right of this page to judge how the different directors presented some key scenes from The Master and Margarita.
