An evening at Royal Theatre Carré is a real treat. Coming soon: three performances with headstrong women playing the leading roles.
Wende’s Kaleidoscope In 2018, Royal Theatre Carré gave Wende Snijders carte blanche to organise her own festival. The singer presented Wende’s Kaleidoscope, a programme of wonderful performers. From a brass band to an operetta and from a fashion show to the Dutch National Ballet, she pulled together all sorts of things. It was an unforgettable evening for both the audience and artists. Thanks to its great success, Wende has been given the go-ahead to do it again this year. The first names to be announced were Pitou, Gallowstreet, Typhoon and Willeke Alberti. In other words, it will be a magnificent cross-section of beautiful folk, funky wind music, poetic hip hop and poignant songs of life. 11 and 12 September
New Amsterdam The CV of Ilse DeLange is impressive, to say the least. She has won many awards and received platinum certification eighteen times with her albums. And there will be no end to DeLange’s great exploits for the time being: this autumn, she will release a new album called New Amsterdam. She recorded it in Nashville with legendary musician and producer T Bone Burnett. But she isn’t just releasing a new record: the singer also has a theatre tour with the same name. During the performances, she will play songs from her brand new record, as well as old hits and favourites. Of course, Ilse will also pay a visit to Carré during the tour. 12 November
Anna KareninaIn Leo Tolstoy’s nineteenth-century novel Anna Karenina, the title heroine puts her whole life on the line for love. She falls for the dashing Count Vronski and leaves her boring husband Karenin and her son for him. Whatever it takes, she wants to be with Vronski. The Boris Eifman Ballet produced a magnificent performance based on the book. The supporting characters from the book do not feature in the performance; the ballet revolves around the doomed love triangle. The choreography makes Anna’s passionate love, which prevails above all else, incredibly beautiful to experience for the audience.5 December, carre.nl
