Karel Appel - The Opera

His designs for the Dutch National Opera
20-02-16 - 16-05-16

In 2016 it has been 10 years since Karel Appel had passed away. An occasion to collaborate with The National Opera and to shine the spotlights on the stage scenery works. The same Opera staff that worked with Appel have restored various pieces especially for this exhibition. Displaying these objects in a museum creates a totally different experience. The visitor moves like an actor over the 'stage', past the scenery and light plan that is designed again by technicians from the National Opera. From close-by you can see the human hand of Appel and his assistants.
