July 18 at 18.30 in the Perm Art Gallery opens the exhibition "The Magic of the Old Theater". The exposition is based on items from the funds of the Ostankino Museum-Estate, giving an idea of the theater of the heyday of this art in Russia in the 18th and 19th centuries.
2019th in Russia declared the year of the theater. This year, the Ostankino manor celebrates its anniversary - one hundred years since the museum was opened in the theatrical palace complex built at the end of the XVIII century. To this date, an exhibition dedicated to the ancient theater and its significance in the lives of people of the XVIII-XIX centuries is timed.
Today, most of the technical effects of the scene occur at the touch of a button on the director’s console. But what about before the invention of electricity turned on the light? How did the curtain rise? How did the scenery change? Now we hear sound effects from the speakers, but how did we cope with this task before the invention of the audio equipment? These and other questions about the theater, which arose long before the advent of our age of high technology, are answered by the exhibition “The Magic of the Ancient Theater”.
The exhibition consists of objects stored in the funds of the museum-estate Ostankino and directly related to theatrical productions of the heyday of this art in the XVIII - XIX centuries. The exhibition will feature more than 100 exhibits.
The magic of the theater is created from many components - it is both the talent of the architect who designs the building, and the theater artist who makes up the performance with decorations, props and creates costumes for the actors, and the playwright, whose characters transform into heroes. Equally important for the production has the stage equipment theatrical machinery and lighting system.
Visitors will be able to see the operating model of the “car of thunder” of the 18th century, genuine lamps used in the Ostankino theater, one of the most advanced in equipping its time. The props deserve special attention: helmets and helmets, arrows and bows of the end of the 18th century, as well as a collection of accessories of the beginning of the 20th century that belonged to the singer Nadezhda Danilovna Belskaya. In the watercolor sketches are presented theatrical scenery, theater buildings and stage projects. Notable portraits of actors of the XVIII century in scenic roles, glorify them. The exhibition is complemented by a number of objects of decorative and applied art, adorned with theatrical themes throughout the 19th century, on theatrical subjects: porcelain, embroidery, fans, paintings and engravings.
The exhibition, organized with the support of the Ministry of Culture of the Perm Region, will work in the Perm Art Gallery until August 18, 2019.
