I was reading about Sara Sadiqova, "the Tatar nightingale", on Wikipedia, and discovered through sarasadykova.ru that this beautiful lady had a matching husband. Gaziz Ajdarskij* was an actor and director (and apparently also a poet?) in Kazan and Moscow in the 1920's.
Above, a portrait from 1928. Below, in the role of Takhir in Fatkhi Burnash's "spectacle" Takhir and Zukhra (Tatar akademik G.Kamal isemle teatr, Kazan 1921).
(*Aidarskii, Aydarsky, how are you supposed to translitterate into English in any logical way?...)
