Samuel Hamen | Edmond de la Fontaine

Théâtres de le Ville de Luxembourg
Grand Théâtre
Premiere: 17.12.2023

To mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of one of Luxembourg’s most popular authors, the Théâtres de la Ville are commissioning Samuel Hamen and Jacques Schiltz to revisit the comedic ghost story Mumm Séis, one of national poet Edmond de la Fontaine’s best known works. The anniversary year of the author, commonly known as Dicks is a good time to take a fresh look at his work and relevance. Around the original operetta, Samuel Hamen has written a modern story. In the course of the evening, tradition and present, nostalgia and irony will meet. The play is directed by Jacques Schiltz, with music by Ivan Boumans.
