A Column of Fire

World premiere 1 March 2019

Bellevue Teatret has secured the world rights to transform Ken Follett’s latest bestseller into an epic musical.

A Column of Fire exists between the rival queens Elizabeth I and Mary Stuart and it ignites a religious feud and a game of power in 16th century England. Caught up amidst the strife is agent Ned Willard, who is also in the throes of a battle of his own – for love.

Grand passions, great songs and intense drama from the very first beat. Høg · Aagaard · Svanekier were also the team behind smash hit The Pillars of the Earth.

A Column of Fire will feature a great cast including Silke Biranell and Xenia Lach-Nielsen, nominated for a Reumert award as Singer of the Year.
