On stage, anything is possible! Through the illusions made by the actors and the audience’s imaginations, time and space are transformed: an ordinary woman becomes a supernatural being, and decorative buttons turn into gems.

In this exhibition, you can see original props and costumes used in historical plays by well-known writers such as Ludvig Holberg and Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson. Original stage design models from productions of Ibsen and Shakespeare plays demonstrate how scenography has changed over time.
