Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
we would like to welcome you to the Digital Museum of the Grand Theatre in Łódź. The idea underlying the creation of the Digital Museum of the Grand Theatre in Łódź was to promote artistic resources of our Theatre. As part of a project co-financed by the European Union we tried to create a place where everybody can get access to the heritage and more than 60 years of remarkable history of the opera house in Łódź. Unforgettable performances have disappeared from our stage over the years but they still remain in the memory of many spectators. Now you can refresh your memory by looking at photographs or programs of your favourite performance. Works on the platform lasted for more than 2 years. During this period we digitalized more than 7000 photographs, 800 costumes, almost 270 folders and as many posters and placards. Obviously, those are not all our resources. We will continue to work to improve our platform, supplement it with further archival material and update entries on an ongoing basis. We will prepare for you thematic exhibitions, and remind you of selected artists provide you with education.
Education, in addition to protection of cultural heritage, is our priority. We wish to show our small spectators and others that it is worth visiting the theatre that classical music is worth listening to, that an opera house is a large mechanism with very interesting recesses, and the range of professions in the opera house is vast. We prepared interesting games and virtual amusements for the youngest spectators. We are also encourage you to participate in our workshops and classes conducted in the opera building and to our performances.
The Museum is certainly worth visiting on a frequent basis.
Looking forward to seeing you here.
Team of the Digital Museum of the Grand Theatre in Łódź
