Event description

Description

Speaker: Dr Anne Sophie Refskou - University of Surrey and Lars Romann Engel - Hamletscenen in Elsinore

York International Shakespeare Festival

Shakespeare set Hamlet in Elsinore. The castle at Elsinore (Kronborg Castle) has since made the play its own. In this illustrated talk, Dr Anne Sophie Refskou (University of Surrey) and Lars Romann Engel (Artistic Director of Hamletscenen in Elsinore) discuss the lively history of Hamlet in Denmark, tracing how Shakespeare’s fictional setting for Hamlet has become a real one.

With a Shakespearean musical introduction from the Ebor Singers.

Attended by the Danish Ambassador Claus Grube
