The Giants in Leeuwarden, The Netherlands

Written by Royal de Luxe - 12 January 2018

Leeuwarden capital européenne

The city of Leeuwarden has been selected to be European Capital of Culture in 2018. For the occasion, Royal de Luxe is invited to present a new story from the saga of the Giants on the 17, 18 and 19 August.

If it is the first time that the Giants will set foot in The Netherlands, the Company will be there in a familiar country as the Netherlands have already hosted 7 of the previous creations of the company: "Desgarones" and "Roman-photo" in 1987 and 1989 in Amsterdam, "The true History of France" in 1991 in Utrecht, "Peplum" in 1996 in Groeningen, "Tony Travola's nightmares" and "Roman-photo" by the Gran Reynata Company in 2006 and 2008 in Tershelling, and finally, "The manequins' revolt" in 2008 in Maastricht.

"In 2018, we are going to show the world how we, the Frisians, celebrate life!" This is what can be read on the event website: https://www.friesland.nl/en/european-capital-of-culture/calendar/202169970/the-giants-of-royal-de-luxe (find more info about the show on this address)
