The Metropolitan Opera: Hamlet Encore
NCM Fathom presents an encore presentation of Thomas' Hamlet in select theatres nationwide. The encore presentation (captured live on March 27, 2010) will be shown for one day only on Wednesday, April 14, 2010 at 6:30 PM in all time zones. The works of Shakespeare have inspired more operatic adaptations than any other writer's. Simon Keenlyside and Natalie Dessay bring their extraordinary acting and singing skills to two of the Bard's most unforgettable characters in this new production of Ambroise Thomas's Hamlet. For the role of Ophelia, the French composer created an extended mad scene that is among the greatest in opera.
