Mata Hari

Culture

The turbulent life of the Dutch spy and dancer Mata Hari is at the heart of a large-scale production by Du National Ballet. Margaretha Geertruida Zelle – more commonly known as Mata Hari – is one of the most iconic women in Dutch history. She was one of the most famous dancers of her day. She travelled throughout Europe and had a network of highly placed lovers everywhere, which made her an ideal spy during World War I. She was accused – rightly or wrongly – of being a double agent, and she died in front of a French firing squad in 1917.
