With over 350 years on its back, the Bavarian State Opera is one of the leading opera houses in the world. Situated on the Max Joseph Platz, next to high-street shops and a skip away from the Marienplatz, the opera is one of Munich’s main attractions. Its imposing architecture houses the Opera, the Bavarian State Ballet, and the Bavarian State Orchestra. In 2021 the State Opera decided to go in a new direction and engaed Serge Dorny, a experienced director, who was working already in different opera houses.
Every season is getting is own identity, including posters, books, flags and more. Every season is presented all around the city and is consequetly influencing the look of every district in the city. This year we decided to work with a simple system which is just based on simple colors. Every opera premiere gets is own color. For the ballet we decided to go with gradients.
