Theatre branoul the hague

Every month, the New European Ensemble brings to you a new mix of literature, poetry and music in Salon Branoul and Salon op Zuid



From Marx’s Communist Manifesto through Gorbachev’s resignation speech, the readings trace the history of communism and its relationship to some of the leading literary dissidents and critics of the ideology. The words of Stalin are placed alongside those of Orwell, Koestler and Solzhenitsyn. Music from the Soviet Union’s greatest composers from Shostakovich through Schnittke and Gubaidulina give colour and depth to this historical retrospective.


Readings: Mitchell Sandler


Music: Musicians from the New European Ensemble perform Gubaidulina, Shostakovich and Schnittke


Language: English
