Since October 2022, Theatre Group SPOT has been working on this musical under the direction of director Ino Mijland, choreographer Eugène Jans and musical director Richard FitzHugh. Accompanied by a live orchestra, you can see Jekyll & Hyde at a unique location: the Openluchttheater Zuiderpark in The Hague.

The story

We are in London, anno 1888. A prosperous city of millions with great differences between the wealthy elite and the plodding low class. Dr Henry Jekyll (Dennis Bes), after the death of his father, who dies of mental illness, starts a grand experiment towards splitting the good and evil in man, in order to eradicate evil and free man from all intolerance. 

The elite reject Jekyll's ideas and label them unethical. But his fiancée Emma Danvers (Madeleine Braakman), daughter of a prominent man in London's elite, remains by Jekylls side. However, during a wild night, his eye also falls on the beautiful Lucy Harris (Eveline Castelein), who develops a special relationship with the two-faced doctor.

Henry Jekyll is determined to achieve his goal and makes a drastic decision, with disastrous consequences for those around him and himself. A story about inner divisions, love and facades. Performed with poignant, symphonic and moving songs.


Jekyll & Hyde can be seen at 12, 13 and 14 May at Open-air theatre Zuiderpark in The Hague. Tickets are available via: www.theatergroepspot.nl/huidige-productie and cost €24.50 each.
