Royal Blossoms – 300 years of heritage and art
Inspired by the historically important paintings and the endless variety of form of the famous sculptures from the MEISSEN® Manufactory archives, creative director Frida Weyer has designed an elaborate collection of evening, cocktail and bridal dresses – timelessly elegant, feminine,
graceful and with a touch of romantic luxuriance.
Frida Weyer creates volume with beautiful silk organza, modeled in highly expressive, sculptural silhouettes reflecting the MEISSEN® shapes from which they were inspired, and which shimmer with the contrasting flow of sensual silks and delicate lacework. The creations are adorned with modern-style floral decorations. The delicate, three-dimensional embroidery was inspired by MEISSEN® chinoiseries and the famous MEISSEN® snowball-blossom appliqués from the 18th century, as well as by floral designs from the 19th and 20th centuries. Fine details with gold
pigments and finishing touches with sculptural flowers, pearls and crystals perfectly express the traditional craftsmanship of the legendary Manufactory.
"Oedipus the King" grew out of ancient Greek myths dating back over three thousand years. For centuries the story of the King who unwittingly kills his father and marries his mother, like those of the Greek tragedies, was passed down from generation to generation as oral history, spoken or sung. Then, around 750 B.C, the Greek discovered writing, and began to record their myths. Sophocles wrote his play around 428 B.C. This production is a new translation from The Original Greek by Nicholas Rudall. Starring: Harry Lennix, Spencer Garrett, Francis Guinan, Charles Kimbrough, Rod McLachlan, Carolyn Seymour, W.
