Product description: Albertová Helena - Josef Svoboda - Scenographer

The monograph examines the scenographic work of the Czech stage designer and architect Josef Svoboda (1920–2002), from his first efforts as an amateur in his native town of Čáslav, to his final production in 2002. It endeavours to record his most important undertakings – his work at the Grand Opera of 5 May in Prague, overcoming socialist realism at the National Theatre in Prague, the golden years with Alfréd Radok and Otomar Krejča at the same theatre, the genesis, successes, and fate of Laterna Magika, entry onto the great world stage of opera and ballet, and work with prominent world directors in drama. In the case of Josef Svoboda, it is not enough just to name and describe the productions he worked on, as an integral part of his work and world fame were his discoveries in the field of new theatre technologies. Expanding his ‘scenographic alphabet’, as he himself described the arsenal techniques that modern theatre can use in stage design, became his lifelong obsession. Better knowledge of Svoboda – the architect – should be provided by a chapter on his unrealised projects for theatre buildings. An important and innovative part of this monograph is the complete list of his works accompanied, wherever possible, by a small informative picture on each entry.
