Alexander de Bruijn | NL

Share this show

September 1629. Prince Frederik Hendrik’s troops have been besieging ’s-Hertogenbosch for four months. Destruction, disease, famine and death are crushing every last bit of hope. Bishop Ophovius is faced with a terrible choice. Should he call upon the citizens to defend the city to the last drop of blood? Or surrender, causing himself, his order and his church to be banished? In the historic Zwanenbroedershuis actor Alexander de Bruijn [1984] shares the captivating tale of the fall of ’s-Hertogenbosch. A new text, bursting with excitement, laughter and drama. This show is the opener for Boulevard’s long-term project ‘Het oog van de stad’. Each festival year, various partners from the city present a project that touches on ‘s-Hertogenbosch’s past, present or future.
