Head of Confidencen Association of Friends
Board and General Management
For me, the Ulriksdal Palace Theatre is not only an integral part of Swedish theatre history. There is also a special personal connection. For many years I lived in Villa Beylon on the palace grounds, right next to the building that had once hosted Queen Lovisa Ulrika’s royal theatre and since then had fallen into decay for centuries. When I showed the almost entirely ruined theatre to opera singer Kjerstin Dellert, she made it her life mission to save the theatre, and the long-standing dream of reviving the Confidencen could finally be made true. It is with great joy that I have been able to see the magnificent rooms of the theatre regain their splendour, and once more be filled with singing, dancing and music.
Today the Confidencen stands as a living monument of Swedish cultural history. With the reviving of the theatre comes a great responsibility to maintain and develop the building and its function as a living theatre. As many as possible should be able to experience the magic of Sweden’s oldest rococo theatre, both today’s audiences and future generations.
