Unesco Heritage Site Haiku - Margravial Opera House, Germany - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

Margravial Opera House
Giuseppe's
fiery love

Margravial Opera House
an engagement to extol
the flame of youthful love

Margravial Opera House
another director calling
off the the fire scene

Margravial Opera House
a fiery passion
consumes Giuseppe


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Fire extinguishers at the ready - Germany's Margravial opera house is built entirely from wood. Built between 1746 and 1750, it was designed by renowned theatre architect Giuseppe Galli Bibiena and is one of the last remaining 18th century theatres in Europe. And the reason for its construction? Margravial was built to commemorate the engagement, in 1744, of Elisabeth Friederike Sophie of Brandenburg-Bayreuth, who was just twelve years old at the time, to Duke Carl Eugen von Württemberg.
