Through the end of the year, Marc Chagall’s Magic Flute: Highlights from the Metropolitan Opera will be on exhibition at the Fenimore Art Museum. This showing complements The Glimmerglass Festival’s summer schedule, and features artifacts associated with the Metropolitan Opera’s 1967 production of Mozart’s The Magic Flute, which featured famed artist Marc Chagall overseeing all aspects of artistic design.
Every item Chagall created for the production, from the costumes and backdrops to the visuals for publicity, boldly reflected his eye-catching style, which took an already colorful 18th-century masterpiece to even loftier, creative heights.
There is six outlandishly vibrant costumes and four fantastical masks, each designed and hand-painted by Marc Chagall, himself. The pieces are on loan from the Metropolitan Opera.
The Fenimore Art Museum is dedicated to welcoming and connecting people to our shared cultural heritage through exhibitions and programs that provoke, delight, and inspire. -
