Queen Margrethe attends the opening of the EventyrDronningen exhibition with Prince Joachim & Princess Marie

On Wednesday, Queen Margrethe opened the ‘EventyrDronningen’ exhibition at Amalienborg Museum. She was joined by Prince Joachim and Princess Marie.

‘EventyrDronningen’ (‘The Fairytale Queen’) is an exhibition based on the costumes and scenographies created by Queen Margrethe. The exhibition will run from September 27th to May 19, 2019, at Amalienborg Museum. The Queen worked closely with the royal house curator, Elisabeth von Buchwald, and designer Shane Brox to create the exhibition which aims to give the visitors an insight to the Queen’s artistic mind: “The overall theme of the exhibition is the world of adventure and visitors will, among other things, get an insight into several visual sources that have inspired the Queen over time. In addition, the Queen’s work desk and studio have been recreated, so that the visitors’ visitors can get a closer insight into the Queen’s artistic work.”

Since the 1980s, the Queen has worked professionally with scenography, and over the years she has contributed to many productions for The Royal Danish Theatre and The Pantomime Theatre in Tivoli Gardens such as The Nutcracker, Cinderella, Wild Swans, Love in the Dustbin, Thumbelina, The Tinder Box, The Swineherd, and The Steadfast Tin Soldier. About her work in scenography, Queen Margrethe said: “For me, part of the thrill is to venture onto thin ice without knowing whether it will hold — it’s probably quite healthy to land in those kinds of situations now and again, where you can’t do things on autopilot”.

According to Elizabeth von Buchwald, the Royal Family’s curator, the exhibition aims to “let the visitor gain a deeper insight into the creative part of the Queen’s mind”.
