Dutch graphic designer and filmmaker Lex Reitsma (1958-) created the visual identity for de Nederlandse Opera (the Dutch National Opera) from 1990 to 2014. Reitsma’s opera posters have won numerous awards and were the subject of a 2014 exhibition at Amsterdam’s Stedelijk Museum.
In this poster, Reitsma has created a beautiful and haunting shadow puppet swan to represent Lohengrin, the Swan Knight.
