History of the stage
The stage tradition at Muiderslot castle started in the 17th century, when the poet and writer P.C. Hooft resided at the castle. He loved theater, music, and lively gatherings and frequently invited creative friends to Muiderslot castle for fantastic evenings filled with theater, music, readings, and poetry. The staff served drinks and meals. Read more about the group of friends that later became known as the Muiderkring (Muider Circle). It is extraordinary that this oldest stage in the Netherlands is still in use. And it is the only one in the country!
