Iconic historical stage designs for The Queen of the Night sequence from Mozart’s “Magic Flute” - the first image by Karl Friedrich Schinkel in 1815, the second by Simon Quaglio in 1818 (x)

Aww, I recognize this! It’s the sicilian Palazzo Valguarnera-Gangi, where The Leopard (Il Gattopardo) was set. I’ve never been really fond of baroque style but this is amazing..
