Guided tour of the special exhibition The Fairy-Tale Queen

Ladies and Gentlemen!

Welcome to an experience which wrestles with the creative idea, the thought which inspires hands to create something out of nothing! Come with us on a guided tour of the Queen’s creative universe.

The guided tour will take place on the palace’s piano nobile, where curator Elisabeth von Buchwald and exhibition designer Shane Brox have created the special exhibition The Fairy-Tale Queen in collaboration with The Danish Royal Collection.

Set your imagination free and step into the exhibition’s magical universe with a guide at the helm, who will accompany you on a journey through the exhibition. While wandering through the halls of the palace, we will work our way to the source and sphere of activity of the creative idea, through a stream of sources of inspiration and orgies of dressing up, fairy-tale universes and imaginative characters.

The guided tour addresses the theme of being a creative person, and along the way we will be accompanied by the princess who becomes a playful adult. We move from the magic forest, where anything can happen, to a ball at the palace with the King and Queen, and on to the bleak underworld where the dark beings of the Queen’s universe dance in a ring, and continue the fairy-tale journey into the creative workshop, culminating in a frosty winter tableau from the production The Little Snowgirl.

Fairy-tales, costumes, props, and scenography are connected in new ways, and we get up close to the Queen’s creative process when making the visual universes for productions such as The Swineherd, The Steadfast Tin Soldier, Thumbelina, and Cinderella.

The guided tour is a homage to the creative act. We look forward to being inspired together with you!
