Theater and Opera in Posters

Two new exhibitions at the Wilanów Poster Museum in Warsaw explore posters produced for theater and opera productions after World War II.

The first exhibition is entitled Grand Theater of the World—Theater Posters 1945-2012 and comprises around 250 pieces from countries where posters have played an important part in promoting the performing arts.

Alongside categories such as traditional and avant-garde Western theater posters, there are posters advertising non-European theatrical forms and “transcontinental” posters—those designed by Europeans and Americans for plays staged by Asian theaters, or vice versa.

The other exhibition, at the museum’s New Gallery, is entitled From Aida to Die Zauberflöte—Opera Posters 1945-2012. This differs from the first exhibition in that it focuses on posters produced in Poland. Aida by Giuseppe Verdi and Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart are opera classics which continue to inspire some of the world’s best visual artists. In their posters, such artists interpret opera librettos and scores, using different symbols and metaphors to portray the musical masterpieces and inform audiences about production details. Viewers can take in the fascinating interplay of music and visual art in almost 200 posters from the Wilanów Poster Museum’s collection—work produced by several generations of poster artists.

Both exhibitions run until May 12.
