Deutsche Oper Presents: Hamlet

There are currently no dates available for this event.

Hamlet is one of the most layered and philosophical tragedies known to man. Who knew that it would be possible to adapt Hamlet into an opera? Ambroise Thomas, Michel Carre and Jules Barbier have achieved that and even added a happy ending to this famous tragedy. What is more, their version of Hamlet is the most successful adaption of the play to exists so far.

The opera was written in the time of operatic upheaval and drame lyrique. The new opera form became more intimate and lyrical, more focused on the characters of the story. Hamlet bears all of those characteristics.
