Theatre branoul the hague
Every month, the New European Ensemble brings to you a new mix of literature, poetry and music in Salon Branoul and Salon op Zuid
In collaboration with Musik på Udden in Stockholm, the New European Ensemble is proud to present poetry from the new English translation of Kjell Espmark’s volume Bartok against the Third Reich.
Espmark is one of Sweden’s leading writers, literary historians as well as a professor of literature at Stockholm University. His poems were inspired by the musicians and composers banned by the Nazi regime. The poems focus on the historical events surrounding the Third Reich and give voice to the musical works that were banned and destroyed at the time.
Bartok’s music will be presented alongside lesser known works by Hans Pfitzner and Hans Erich Apostel who have been unjustly forgotten.
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.
