Hamlet Live

Step into Hamlet's world at his own castle Kronborg in Elsinore

Hamlet Live from June 1st to August 31st 2019 at Kronborg Castle. Daily 10:00-17:00

Guests walking into the courtyard at Kronborg Castle will step right into the world of Shakespeare's Hamlet.

In the summer of 2019 Hamlet, his friends and enemies will move into the chambers of the castle.

William Shakespeare chose to place Hamlet at Kronborg in Elsinore, when he wrote his world-renowned drama. All summer Kronborg's guests will meet the famous characters from the play as they move around the chambers and rooms.

The audience will experience the daily life of the characters up close and they can interact with the protagonists. The guests are witnesses to the tragic fates of the characters, as they take arms against or poison each other.

No matter where the guests find themselves at the castle, they find themselves in the world of Hamlet, a world of drama, lust, murder by poison and sword fights.

The characters/actors in Hamlet Live speak English, but knowledge of English is not necessary to understand the drama and to experience Hamlet Live.

Producers/Directors: Peter Holst-Beck and Barry McKenna
