He staged the first two opera’s ever written in the Dutch language: Ceres, Bacchus en Venus and De Triomferende Min.
His work as director was proceeded by an extensive acting career that started in New York. He studied with Stella Adler and worked for five years as an actor in works by Shakespeare, Molière and Tennessee Williams.
After returning to Holland he appeared a myriad of parts for television, theatre and opera and was a long standing member of the (in)famous ‘Werkteater’ where he, as both actor and director, was responsible for the creation of more than thirty productions.
From the mid 90’s on he focused mainly on musical-theatre and starred in productions as: Hoera we zijn Normaal, Titanic, Company, Merrily We Roll Along and The three Musketeers.
“Already with his staging of The Merry Widow director Marc Krone showed that he has an unerring sense of the light genre. With Die Stumme Serenade he delivers a first class direction again. Krone gets the best from his singers, lets them work the whole room and knows how to get them to deliver their very best.”
