Shakespeare Festival

Shakespeare Festival 2018 at Kronborg Castle offers extraordinary, yet very different open-air performances. This year a stage will be built over the moat, and Kronborg castle will be the backdrop to the plays.

This year there will be three performances and an introduction to Shakespeare at the festival

Hamlet - The Revenge of Prince Zi Dan

Remove "Why" from the equation, add acrobatic stunts and comedy as Shakespeare's Hamlet unfolds before your very eyes with Chinese singing, speech, mime and dance as actors face off in dramatic face masks and silk costumes

Searching for William

Fronted by the highly acclaimed actor and singer Christian Freidel, the band Woods of Birnam have performed the strongly visual and poetic production theatre concert to packed houses.

Shakespeare in Concert

Shakespeare in Concert is the festive finale of this year's Shakespeare Festival. Look forward to an exclusive concert with formidable singing, dancing, and music.

Shakespeare was here - Free introduction to Shakespeare

Every night before the performance you can enjoy a free Shakespeare introduction. This unusual one-man-show presents an entertaining and notable gallery of international Shakespeare experts, all played by the same actor. It is a remarkable story that always interlinks Shakespeare, Hamlet and Kronborg in one of the world’s greatest mysteries.
