A unique project for a distinguished musical

Soldaat van Oranje (Soldier of Orange), the story of one of the Netherlands’ greatest resistance heroes, is well-known in the Netherlands. After the success of the book and the movie, a musical spectacle followed, and the premier took place in a breathtaking historic location – a hangar on the former Valkenburg military airfield in Katwijk.

Unique theatre concept

The wartime experiences of several students from Leiden, among them Erik Hazelhoff Roelfzema, were adapted into an unsurpassed theater production.  The unique theater concept helped make the musical a striking success.

Our contribution

The TheaterHangaar, as the theatre complex is known, is equipped with all necessary facilities and public spaces, including an entrance hall and cloakroom, foyer, restaurant (Restaurant Noordeinde with a view across the runway) and an event space featuring a World War II exhibit.

These facilities are located in a separate building adjacent to the theatre (interior design by design agency SEVV).  Gielissen was responsible for furnishing the entire building on behalf of TheaterHangaar BV – from curtains and furniture to the cloakroom and lighting – Gielissen played an instrumental role for the very special theater production.
