Getting Inside the Drottningholm Court Theatre
“Go ahead”, he said, in Swedish.
We had taken a bus out of central Stockholm to Drottningholm to see the perfectly preserved, even with its period scenery, 18th century theatre in its palace where time had stood still and one could visit a complete, as though in a time capsule, court theatre of the Enlightenment. The only trouble was that we got there minutes too late for the last tour of the day.
Horribly disappointed, I pled my case, as a professionally interested and now desperate Fulbright Scholar, to the ticket master by way of a nice lady who translated for me.
