German opera mourns a leading designer

Gabriele Jaenecke, one of Germany’s most respected costume and stage designers, has died at 68.

She contributed to more than 150 opera productions, working with directors worked with directors Andreas Homoki, Johannes Schaaf, Ludger Engels and, latterly, Nadja Loschky. She also taught design at Berlin’s Hanns Eisler academy.

  • Major opera houses should have their own resident designers instead of hiring these independent weirdo directors to stage trashy productions. San Francisco Opera did in the 1990’s and it was wonderful (Tosca, Rosenkav, etc.)
