On May 13, an exhibit of the works by designer Madis Nurms will be opened in Port Artur, Pärnu. The opening of the exhibition also marks the beginning of international opera festival PromFest.
Madis Nurms is a designer whose main artistic focus is on operas, hence this exhibition concentrates on costumes from various pieces of music theater.
Genuine stage costumes are shown, from both Estonian as well as foreign productions. And if usually the costumes are meant to be viewed from distance, this exhibition will allow the viewer to examine their design and materials up close. Special attention is given to costume drawings, which allows the visitors to have a closer look at the process of creating a character.
