A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO THE QUEEN OF DENMARK

WORLD PREMIERE

June - September 2023

The Royal Danish Theatre

ODEON

The Concert Hall of Aarhus

A sumptuous performance about her that brings us all together. A touching story with goosebump-inducing music about fate, duty, legacy and, not least, love. From her childhood with a father she adores. When she is told at thirteen that she is to inherit the throne. Meeting Henri and the difficult balance between family and obligations. Grieving the death of her father and assuming the regency. The New Year’s speeches, the press and a lifelong love of theater and art. The harsh treatment of the Prince Consort by the Danes, a family life in the press spotlight and saying goodbye to loved ones.
