Simon Keenlyside and Marlis Petersen bring extraordinary skills to this Ambroise Thomas production.
The works of Shakespeare have inspired more operatic adaptations than any other writer. Simon Keenlyside and Marlis Petersen bring their extraordinary acting and singing skills to two of the Bard's most unforgettable characters in this new production of Ambroise Thomas' "Hamlet." For the role of Ophelia, the French composer created an extended mad scene that is among the greatest in opera. Louis Langree conducts the production.
