The Shakespeare Festival

Theatre in the open air – Art, Culture and Nature

Every year in August HamletScenen presents the Shakespeare Festival, featuring a wealth of open-air theatre performances at the beautiful Kronborg Castle in Elsinore at the northern tip of Zealand. The Shakespeare Festival is a place to experience spectacular, innovative Shakespeare performances in the open air on a late summer’s evening.

The productions are always staged by some of the most acclaimed theatre companies and theatre artists of our time. At Kronborg Castle the constantly changing Danish weather, screech of sea gulls and the glimmer of stars all unites art, cultural heritage and nature – guaranteeing each performance to be a magical experience.

Each spring we announce the program for the coming Shakespeare Festival and the ticket sale will begin no later than May 1.
