The world of the theatre reaches the museum this autumn with Frederic Amat: the painted stage, an exhibition that focuses on the creative process of this artist and set designer through a selection of drawings, storyboards and working notebooks relating to some of his most important productions. They include The Public, in collaboration with the set designer Fabià Piugserver, The Testament of Mary by Colm Toibín and Iphigenia in Thrace by José de Nebra, the opening of which at the Teatro de la Zarzuela coincides with this display.

The exhibition is structured to reveal the work that takes place behind the stage curtain and the wings, in which painting and the theatrical arts come together and inspire each other with the aim of offering the audience a unique experience.
