Theatre branoul the hague
Every month, the New European Ensemble brings to you a new mix of literature, poetry and music in Salon Branoul
November 2018 marks the centenary of the declaration of the end of the First World War. Among the soldiers in the trenches were poets, musicians and composers of outstanding quality. The programme reflects on art from the period from 1914-1918, alternating German and English texts by Siegfried Sassoon, Stefan George, Wilfred Owen and more. It will be combined with inspiring music by Elgar, Webern, Ravel and Butterworth.
Readings – Alexander Oliver (English), Hans Radlof (German)
Texts by Siegfried Sassoon, Stefan George, Wilfred Owen, Stefan George & Reinhard George
Music by Elgar, Webern, Ravel & Butterworth
Daan Treur - Piano
Rada Ovcharova - Violin
Willem Stam - Cello
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
