Until the curtain falls  6 March until 21 June 2009

With historic film clips and audio recordings, Until the curtain falls brings the theatrical history of the Hollandsche Schouwburg to life. The emphasis is on the concerts, plays, revues, and operettas performed there up to 1942 (such as the première of Herman Heijermans' play Op hoop van zegen (The Good Hope) in 1900). Many of the featured songs inspired later generations, and today, they are reminders of a rich and illustrious past. Heintje Davids, Sylvain Poons, and Esther de Boer van Rijk (the leading lady in Op hoop van zegen) are just a few of the stars that you can see and hear in Until the curtain falls.

Until the curtain falls (15 minutes in length, with English subtitles) will be on continuous display every day in the entrance hall of the Hollandsche Schouwburg.

Until the curtain falls is presented in connection with the exhibition Laugh . . . and Forget! Songs by Jewish artists 
at the Jewish Historical Museum from 6 March to 21 June 2009.
