Sorry, there are currently no available shows.

When Willem Nijholt turned 60, and had been in the theatre business for 35 years, a surprise party was organised for him in Stadsschouwburg Amsterdam. On that occasion he received the award of Officer in the order of Oranje-Nassau, for his impressive and versatile career that covers much more than the TV series (including Willem van Oranje, en Kunt U Mij De Weg Naar Hamelen Vertellen Mijnheer?) and films (such as Ciske de Rat and Pietje Bel) that made him a familiar face to the general public.

Grote Zaal

Duration: 2h

In this edition of Een leven lang theater (A lifelong theatre), Ivo van Hove talks to Nijholt about the path he has travelled within the theatre. From the early stage work in the sixties, through the Wim Sonneveld theatre shows, to the musicals by, among others, Annie M.G. Schmidt, and great classical musicals such as Cabaret, Oliver and Miss Saigon. Nijholts interpretation of Salieri in Amadeus will also be discussed, as will his role as Claudius in the Hamlet that Ivo van Hove directed at Het Zuidelijk Toneel.

In Een leven lang theater we travel through Dutch theatre and dance history, guided by artists who play a significant role in that history. And whose careers have for a large part played out in Internationaal Theater Amsterdam. Film and image fragments are the main theme of the story.
