Production from Lyric Opera of Kansas City

Ambroise Thomas’ musically and dramatically virtuosic adaptation of the classic story follows Hamlet in his pursuit to avenge his father’s murder. Known for Ophelia’s hauntingly beautiful mad scene, “À vos jeux, mes amis,” this dazzling production by Thaddeus Strassberger brings Shakespeare’s famous play to life. The opera is conducted by WNO’s General Director Plácido Domingo and Patrick Fournillier.
The running time for this production is approximately three hours and five minutes including one 20-minute intermission.
