OPEN AIR THEATRE – ART, CULTURE AND NATURE
2018 is a 10 year mark for Shakespeare Festival hosting and producing outdoor theatre at Kronborg Castle, and we will of course celebrate!
Every year in August HamletScenen presents Shakespeare Festival, open-air theatre at Kronborg Castle in Elsinore at the northern tip of Zealand. The productions are always staged by some of the most acclaimed theatre companies and theatre artists of our time. The stage is set over the moat with beautiful Kronborg Castle as backdrop and 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.
The Shakespeare Festival 2018 program offers absolutely unique theatre experiences with performances from around the world. Join us, when the stage is occupied by the Chinese Peking Opera Hamlet – The Revenge of Prince Zi Dan, a German theatre concert Searching for William and this year’s in-house productions Shakespeare in Concert 2018 and Shakespeare Was Here.
