DES GB2013 E

What does a make-up artist actually do? Where do the costumes that singers and dancers wear on stage come from? And how is a stage set created? Answers to these questions were provided for visitors to the Altmarkt-Galerie Dresden in June. An exhibition took a detailed look at the work that goes on behind the cur- tain of the neigh- bouring Semper Opera House to en- sure that the sym- phonies, operas and ballets succeed in bringing joy and pleasure. It quite literally provided a peak “behind the scenes”. Various exhibits, such as an oversized teapot from the set of the ballet “Coppélia”, brought the atmosphere of a stage production to the mall. Visi- tors with an interest in the subject were also able to learn a lot about the composers Richard Wagner and Richard Strauss, whose careers were closely associated with the Dresden opera house. THE WORLD OF THE SEMPER OPERA HOUSE IN DRESDEN For carnival lovers from Mannheim and the local area, 12 November 2013 was a very special day: the Freudenheim carnival society “Lallehaag” presented its new City Princess in the Rhein-Neckar-Zentrum. In her “civic life” Jana I. works as a depart- ment manager for our tenant engelhorn, and her close connection with her place of work was also reflected in her title: “Jana I, Princess of the City of Mannheim and the Electoral Palatinate from the Rhein- Neckar-Zentrum” was her name during her reign. The programme in the center in- cluded autograph sessions, public appearances and children’s dance competitions at which donations were collected for research into childhood cancers.
