Exhibition „Fascination of the Stage“, Baroque stage machinery at fingertips

Baroque stage machinery at fingertips

May 1 till June 28, 2020 in Putbus Stables, Tuesday till Sunday 11 am  - 5 pm

As the Putbus opened its doors 200 years ago, it must have charmed its guests with fascinating visual effects and illusions. They were created by the historic stage machinery (of course at the corresponding technical level).

Stage scenery could be quite frequently changed already at those times. Appearance from Heaven (fly loft) or Hell (understage) were enormously important for the plays with the mythological background. How did one imitate sounds of rain, storm and thunder? How were illusions of waterfalls or stormy seas created?

You will find answers to these questions in our exhibition.

The major highlight is the reconstructed baroque stage. During the exhibition, some performances will also take place on that stage.

Entrance is free, donations to the Association are welcome.
