Winter Wonder Castle 2017


This year, Ghent’s winter festivities catapult Castle of the Counts back in time. It is Christmas 1183. The Count of Flanders receives the king of England and his family in his Winter Wonder Castle with its crackling log fires, flickering candles and instrumentalists all around. Yet the music strikes the occasional false note and the tension is tangible. A power struggle is being waged. Light and dark become embroiled in violent combat... with an unexpected outcome.
