Opening of the Exhibition “Blumbergs: Sacrarium From The Magic Flute”

At 5:00 PM on June 7, 2016, the Pauls Stradiņš Museum of the History of Medicine will be opening the exhibition “Blumbergs: Sacrarium From The Magic Flute.”  The exhibition is the latest example of a partnership between the museum and the Latvian National Opera and Ballet that began in 2012 with the exhibition “Medicine in Operas.”  This year that art collector Dr Guntis Belēvičs is involved in the cycle, because his collection includes set designs for the Mozart opera The Magic Flute that were produced by set designer Ilmārs Blumbergs (1943-2016).  The 2001 staging of the opera was handled by Blumbergs, director Viesturs Kairišs and conductor Gintars Rinkevičs.  The exhibition offers a look at the concept and visual ideas of the opera through the artist’s first sketches and notes about how the costume sketches are to be transformed into real costumes.
