A Column of Fire
In 2019, Bellevue Teatret secured the world rights to transform Ken Follett’s latest bestseller into an epic musical.
The musical was a great success which will re-open on 1 March 2020.
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.
