Toneelgroep Amsterdam brings her famous show Roman tragedies next summer in Carré in Amsterdam, as part of the Holland Festival 2018.
It is eleven years ago that the six-hour Shakespeare marathon, which now all over the world travelled, also as part of that annual cultuurfestijn premiered. It is the last time that the show in the Netherlands will be shown.
“It will be a grande finale with all the bells and whistles,” said a spokeswoman for the company. Roman Tragedies will be only a few times in Paris.
Director Ivo van Hove forged several plays of Shakespeare (Coriolanus, Julius Caesar and Anthony & Cleopatra) together into a multimedia piece, that next year June to see again will be, among others, with Gijs Scholten van Aschat, Hans Kesting and Chris Nietvelt, who for her role as Cleopatra, was awarded the Theo d’or, the most important prix du théâtre for an actress.
The performance was over the past few years to see in Adelaide, Avignon, Barcelona, Braunschweig, London, Montreal, New York, Vienna and Wroclaw.
