Wrapped in a green cloak and carrying his lantern and halberd, he tells the town dwellers the hour and sees that they sleep safe and sound.This is a very special night watchman’s round. Facts on the history of Siegen and on the lives of her people are packed into Balthazar, the night watchman’s, dramatic monologue.
