Circus of Horrors @ Malieveld (4 January)
The most notorious circus of the world (according to themselves) is coming to The Hague! For the ‘Circus of Horrors’ you must have a strong stomach (and be over 16) because there are acts that will disgust and amaze you all at the same time. “It is a lugubrious horror show that creates a huge adrenalin kick from the beginning to the end!” says spokeswoman Maroeska Bakker.
City Ball Delft – Jubilee Edition (5 January)
City Ball Delft is a recurring success number on our city’s activities agenda. Every time, young and old shine on the dance floor in the Theater de Veste, which is reborn into a dance palace. Dansschool Wesseling and the theater get the ‘super swing formula’ for the 10th time in January 2019 and present this jubilee edition on Saturday 5. The program has just been announced!
Dutch Masters from British Country Houses (until 6 January)
The Mauritshuis has an exhibition on 17th-century Dutch paintings with an English origin. Twenty-two Dutch masters from twelve British country houses tell the story of the enormous popularity enjoyed by these Golden Age artists in the United Kingdom. In the 18th and 19th centuries in particular, the British nobility decorated the rooms of their monumental country houses with landscapes, portraits, still lifes and genre pieces by the most famous old masters, including Rembrandt, Aelbert Cuyp, Pieter Saenredam and Jan Steen.
STORM at Panorama Mesdag (until 3 March)
Turbulent seas, menacing skies, devastation, and suffering in the fishing community: in an exhibition that opens on 18 November, the focus at Panorama Mesdag will be on storms, culminating in the storm of 1894. A remarkable selection of paintings will be on show, by artists including Hendrik Willem Mesdag, Jozef Israëls, Louis Meijer, Andreas Schelfhout, and Johannes Christiaan Schotel, with stirring depictions of the overwhelming power of nature.
