From Master Craftsmen and Hard Luck

A Poetic Tour through the Museum by and with Cornelia Boese

Würzburg poet Cornelia Boese was an opera prompter at the Mainfranken Theater in Würzburg for 15 years after completing her musical studies. Since 2005, she has worked as a freelance artist. She has published a number of volumes of poetry and is the winner of the Theaterförderpreis 2002 and the Kulturförderpreis of the city of Würzburg 2005. The poetic tour of the museum, which was written by her, brings you closer to the artwork and its history in an enjoyable and informative manner – always in humorous verse.
