The Hague has spawned many cultural figures and continues to host a wide range of performing arts. From pop music to the Residentie Orkest, and modern dance to English-language theatre, The Hague is full of inspiration. This guide offers you a wide range of cultural activities to explore The Hague on its brightest side.

to the /10 Welcome cultural city

of The Hague!

The Hague is the International City of Peace and Justice. During recent decades The Hague has developed into a home for many illustrious organisations en multinational companies. Tens of thousands of people from all over the world have moved to The Hague and its surroundings to live and work in a uniquely international entourage. The Hague’s cultural assets are a part of that community. The bi-annual Holland Dance Festival is one of the eye-catchers of this years programme. Especially for international orientated guests and expatriates the universal language of dance is a special feature of The Hague. But The Hague has more festivals to explore, for example the “Festival Classique”. This festival offers a wide range of classical concerts and performances all over the city. Some of the outdoor performances are free of charge and give you an excellent opportunity to explore the city. Furthermore The Hague has some a long tradition as the hometown of pop music in The Netherlands. Festivals like Parkpop and a venue like “Het Paard van Troje” continue to give The Hague this extra edge like no other Dutch city can offer. I hope you will enjoy The Hague’s cultural side as much as I do this coming season! Frits Huffnagel Deputy-Mayor for Citymarketing, International Affairs, ICT and Organization

Censorship required that the place of action be relocated to Boston, and the figure of the King was mutated into the British governor, Riccardo. But that did not deter Verdi from creating a gripping, macabre opera about conspiracies and suspicion. Also featuring Holland Symfonia conducted by Antony Hermus. www.reisopera.nl

the events that are decisive in the lives of people. The male part is performed by Kunes himself.

Increpacion Danza Breviarrio

➊ Pan! is an ode to bric-a-brac, a vivid and colorful spectacle on stage which seems like an exploded universe. Pan! is inspired by the vision of the Hopi Indians, who see the world as a whole, in which we have to respect each and ever little thing and being, how useless it may seem. Their ritual movements are translated by Hoche into mechanical harmonies, absurd and humorous, almost a parody on our western waste-bin society. Lionel Hoche’s dance is often qualified as sensual, intimate, tender, and plays on a kinetic and a deconstructed or even dis-’jointed’ vision of a sometimes too-vigorous perception of the body.

➋ Choreography duo Leine & Roebana bring intellectually stimulating, exciting dance and adventurous music. Working with a core of experienced dancers the duo invites guest artists from various disciplines. This leads to fascinating productions that are “not only soothing to the ear, but ravishingly beautiful to watch” (NRC Handelsblad) www.leineroebana.com

The performances of Increpación Danza fuse the temperament of flamenco with modern dance. Five years ago, audiences were impressed with the almost ritual ‘d.C. (Annus Domini)’ and the poetic ‘Tablao’. ‘Breviario’ celebrates the group’s fifteenth’ anniversary. All the magic, passion and poetry is still there, albeit cast in a comical, vaudeville-like setting. The Herald (Scotland) about ‘d.C. (Annus Domini)’: ‘It’s a remarkable, brilliant, bold piece of dance.’ www.increpacion.com

A pointed combination of contemporary dance of artistic directors Krisztina de Châtel and Itzik Galili and guest choreographers. In her latest choreography De Châtel uses two contrasting themes: the critical, animated documentary Waltz with Bashir by the Israeli filmmaker Ari Folman, and Johan Strauss’ eternally optimistic Viennese waltz music. www.dansgroepamsterdam.nl code

Scapino Goecke/Reischl (working title) Two world premières by two of the hottest choreographers: Marco Goecke and Georg Reisch. Goecke has been described by Rudi van Dantzig as the ‘rescuer of dance’. Characteristic of his choreographies are the diffuse atmosphere and playful turns, with virtuoso, flighty lurches into space.


➍ 19

Reischl, by contrast, is known for his lightness. His thematic material develops into abstract dance, revealing capricious, unpredictable body poetry and generous physical interaction between the performers. www.scapinoballet.nl code

Scapino Ballet Rotterdam The Nutcracker / Marco Goecke One of the greatest innovators of dance today is choreographer ‘in residence’ Marco Goecke. Lev Ivanov’s fairytale ballet, dating 1892, set to the irresistible music of Tchaikovsky, as always, has special appeal as the dark days of the Christmas season draw near. Choreographer and innovator Marco Goecke has created a wondrous, contemporary version. www.scapinoballet.nl code

Ballet of the State Opera of Tatarstan The Nutcracker The Ballet of the State Opera of Tatarstan is ‘armed with a ballet corps and soloists many a West-European company should envy’, commented De Telegraaf. To do The Nutcracker justice, the company pulls out all the stops: iceskaters on stage, larger-than-life, mechanical mice, hundreds of costumes and magnificent decors. The famous choreography of Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov, to the fabulous music of Tchaikovsky, is the story of Klara, who finds a doll in the shape of a nutcracker under the Christmas tree. www.vdbtheater.com code

The stage is overpowered by the aesthetics of a pinball machine; spacey sound effects and glistening metal. The devotion of the player stands in stark contrast with the unpredictable outcomes.

Anouk van Dijk DC Wow.wow.wow.Wonders in me

The Carton People The silence

In his latest production he strays from the beaten track to fully embrace the latest -ism in Art: Popportunism. Popportunism is a trend devoid of any form of political or ideological engagement which celebrates unbridled capitalism. Popportunism is all – and only – about presenting seductive, trendy choices designed to satisfy the public’s emotional needs and desires and confirm its self-image.

In this new work by Anouk van Dijk, the paintings of Nik Christensen (1973) are leading. Depicted are wandering figures either trying to escape an imminent demise, or fearlessly awaiting the unknown. Backed by her own permanent dance company, Van Dijk physically frames the pictures in ‘Wowowwonders In me’, in a mesmerising mix of motion, breathing, heartbeat and rhythm. www.nikchristensen.com

One of the most popular dance companies for our younger audiences. ‘The Carton People’ is about gifts. Gifts are often packed in a box. We unpack it and we throw out the box. But what if the box is actually the gift? (6+) www.destilte.nl

Note: If a performance at the Rijswijkse Schouwburg is cancelled, the theatre only refunds the ticket price less the commission of the Haags Uitburo.

Swapping tickets

It is not possible to swap tickets at the Haags UITburo during the theatre season. If you wish to exchange tickets, you should check the relevant theatre to see if this is possible. Theatres have their own rules and conditions for ticket exchanges.

Moving house?

If you are planning to move house during the theatre season, please notify the Haags Uitburo of your new address, so that we can keep you informed of any changes.

Price variations

Ticket prices may vary from one theatre to the next. In some cases, the prices quoted in this guide may be higher than the price charged by the theatre in question. Please be advised that no compensation is due where this should be the case. In any event, pre-booking will assure you of excellent seats.

Lost or misplaced your tickets?

The Haags Uitburo can provide duplicate tickets at a cost of € 2.50 per ticket.
