Message from Kasper Holten at the Royal Theatre:

Det Kongelige Teater will cancel all performances and activities for the audience for the rest of the season, as well as our Summer Ballet and Opera in the free country over this summer. We don’t give up Hobbit – but postpone the whole adventure with a year, so we play in the zoo in May / June 2021 and at Moesgaard in 2022. It is with a heavy heart that we report this out – but our whole staff are fighting for the theater to be ready to come back strong, because we believe that this time will be a reminder for everyone that live experiences, presence and meeting in the theater’s room is not a luxury, but something we need. We’ll see you again soon, and in the meantime we’re thinking of all those who fight out there to take care of our society, our health care and our exposed. In the meantime, both they and all of us can meet ourselves digital at
