Don Carlo – Making-of (2)

Talk with stage designer Heike Scheele

Heike Scheele designed the stage set for Vera Nemirova’s production. The library as a place of knowledge and power, that is the central idea of this direction. »For me, libraries are always places with a respectful aura of importance, of which people feel small«, explains Heike Scheele. You can experience how she has transferred this to the stage of the Semperoper starting tomorrow in our premiere production of »Don Carlo«.

Premiere 22. October 2021
