Oscar – Scapino Ballet & Blaudzun; exclusively on view in Carré


In 2022 Royal Theater Carré celebrates its 135th birthday. Therefore, Carré has asked Scapino Ballet Rotterdam to create a special performance. The performance OSCAR pays tribute to Oscar Carré, the founder of theater on the Amstel, with dance, theatre, circus and live music by Blaudzun.

Choreographer Ed Wubbe is inspired by Oscar’s visionary gaze in combination with his colorful and dramatic life. Blaudzun’s cinematic, emotional numbers form the ideal score for the Netherlands’ oldest dance company, which gave its very first theater performances in 1946 in Carré.

Oscar is played in the circus-ring of Carré. Performances on this famous ring are often experienced as magical by artists and audiences. In this arena Oscar Carré triumphed with his circus and horse shows. Oscar will be a performance in the spirit of Carré, where all theater genres have traditionally been shown. With the entire ensemble of dancers of Scapino, eight circus artists, Blaudzun and his six-piece band, many disciplines melt together in Oscar. Previously, Scapino danced the nine times sold-out performance TING!
