 Hein Heckroth Exhibition 

AN EYE FOR THEATRE

Hein Heckroth at the Städtische Bühnen (Oper & Schauspiel Frankfurt)

Fantasy and strong visions made Gießen born painter, film designer, set and costume designer Hein Heckroth stand out: this winner of several Oscars was one of the most versatile artistic post-war personalities. He came back to Germany after 20 years in exile and designed productions for the Städtische Bühnen Frankfurt until his death, strongly influencing the Harry Buckwitz era, who turned Frankfurt into a European centre for theatre during his time as Intendant. This exhibition in the Holzfoyer includes figurines for opera, plays and ballet and photographs of productions, on loan from the Goethe University's music and theatre collection.

June 3 - July 21 2022

In collaboration with the Hein-Heckroth-Society and the Johann Christian Senckenberg University Library's music, theatre and film section. Sponsored by the Speyersche Hochschulstiftung.
