Theatre branoul the hague
Every month, the New European Ensemble brings to you a new mix of literature, poetry and music in Salon Branoul
Dear Sir, I cherish, I admire, I worship not only your music, I have fallen in love with it, and I still am (...) I know your work so well that I could write a three hundred page book about it (...).
- Letter by Proust to Faure
The New European Ensemble presents a Proust salon with Prins Eugens Waldemarsudde Museum in Stockholm. In Proust's masterpiece,‘In search of lost time’ both music a
and painting play central roles. Some of Proust' writings describe historical works other descriptions are fictitious such as those of the composer Vinteuil. During this salon, fragments from Proust’s ‘Swann in Love’ will be combined with music from the beginning of the 20th century by composers Saint-Saens,Franck, and Faure.
Branoul Theatre in The Hague is a small venue like you can find them in Berlin and Paris. In one of the most beautiful parts of The Hague you can enjoy intimate performances. With only place for 80 people, directly in front of the stage, you can almost smell the actors and musicians.
New European Ensemble is supported by Fonds Podiumkunsten (from 2017) and the city of The Hague
