Stara Zagora Art Gallery mounts a retrospective on the occasion of the hundredth anniversary of Peter Ruskov (31 March 1920 – 5 February 1999), artist and set designer contributing 45 seasons for the oldest opera house outside Sofia. ‘His views of musical scenography were a fundamental and defining moment in the visual image at Stara Zagora Opera House between the 1940s and the late 1980s.’ He was the set designer of more than 100 productions and contributed for the city’s Drama Theatre as well as for other Bulgarian and foreign playhouses.
Expectedly, his stenographic designs for opera, operetta and ballet productions, watercolours of different periods, Bulgarian and foreign landscapes will be put on display.
The organisers seek to find artworks and experiments by Peter Ruskov in various genres.
The exhibition was supposed to open doors on 17 March 2020.
