Ystad Theater

During spring 2017 we started a collaboration with Kammaropera Syd and Ystad Teater.
SARA is designing new back drops in the same manner as the originals, dating from 1894.

The first one, a fountain, was made for the operetta Teaterhotellet and delivered in june 2017.

Watch this wonderful little video from Rickard Söderberg (in Swedish).
