 Xenia Hausner – “This will have been another happy day!”

The new production of Richard Strauss’s opera Der Rosenkavalier staged by André Heller is the occasion for the first cooperation between Staatsoper Unter den Linden and Deutsche Bank’s PalaisPopulaire. Visual art and music theater enter into dialogue, and the works of the Austrian painter Xenia Hausner, who designed the stage set for Der Rosenkavalier, create a contemporary commentary on the complexity of human feelings.

Christo and Jeanne-Claude
Projects 1963–2020

Ingrid & Thomas Jochheim Collection

Christo and Jeanne-Claude are among the most popular artist couples of our time. More than almost any other artistic working and living community, they succeeded in breaking through the boundaries of the art world and in arousing the enthusiasm of a broad public, across all social strata, for their shrouding of buildings and their installations in large landscape spaces.
The PalaisPopulaire presents works from the Jochheim Collection, which traces the history of their spectacular large-scale projects. The focus is on the wrapping of the Reichstag, which made the Berlin parliament building shine in a unique way twenty-five years ago, but rare early objects are also on view.
