This gallery provides an overview of all posters from the Sceneweb archive. It includes posters from the 1830es until now.
Throughout time, posters have been an important part of the marketing of theatre and dance productions. The oldest posters in the Sceneweb archive are from the 1830es and look similar to placard newspapers without photos. They include information about the production in question, who are involved, and where and when it is performed. One example of this type of poster is the poster for Christiania Theater's production The Campbells from 1838.
In other epochs, posters have been made as artworks of their own, such as the poster by Alexey Zaitzow for Hamlet at Det Nye Teater (literally: The New Theatre) in 1928 and Guy Krohg's poster for Studioteatret's The Threepenny Opera in 1947. Some posters are also characterised by their design, and in recent years, posters with photos of the performers have grown in popularity.
