In line with its ambition to become one of Denmark’s biggest theatrical players, Tivoli has created a new position and appointed a new head of programming for its theatre and performances.

The actor and former theatre boss Peter Reichhardt, known among other things for his performances in the TV series ‘2900 Happiness’ and the film ‘Adam’s Apples’ will fill the role.

Year-round ambitions
Nikolaj Koppel said that the actor’s profile is what the company needs to help it on its way to becoming a successful year-round entertainment venue.

“This newly-created position requires solid theatrical credentials in addition to a great deal of artistic knowledge and experience,” he said.

“And of course it requires having a lot of business understanding. I have no doubt that Peter Reichhardt possesses all of these attributes and will contribute to further developing our production for the great benefit of the many people who come to Tivoli year round to see theatre, musicals and other types of productions.” 

In 2014 more than 250,000 people attended Tivoli performances in its Glassalen and concert hall venues.
