The return to Vienna is being viewed with much excitement. 

Mark Seibert has been cast as Maxim de Winter and Nienke Latten as the second Mrs de Winter ('I').  Willemijn Verkaik, a Dutch actress and singer, best known for her roles in Wicked, Frozen, and familiar from the West End stage, has been cast in the role of Mrs Danvers.
