Hamlet, Ophelia, Polonius, and the ghost are going to be roaming the corridors of the Kronborg Castle from June 1 until August 29. Smoke will descend in a mysterious veil of mist, swords will clash sending sparks flying in the air, and blood will flow as Hamlet unleashes a furious frenzy of revenge. You will not be able to guess who you will run into! The air will be tense with fear and intrigue – true to the spirit of Shakespeare, with bursts of comedy, and perhaps a few madcap artists.
This is the rough itinerary of what is stored for Danish castle Kronborg Castle in Elsinore, north of Copenhagen this summer.
