Buy Hamlet tickets, Glyndebourne 2017
A story of betrayal, revenge and madness
To be, or not to be. This is Hamlet’s dilemma, and the essence of Shakespeare’s most famous and arguably greatest work, given new life in operatic form in this original Glyndebourne commission.
Thoughts of murder and revenge drive Hamlet when he learns that it was his uncle Claudius who killed his father, the King of Denmark, then seized his father’s crown and wife.
But Hamlet’s vengeance vies with the question: is suicide a morally valid deed in an unbearably painful world?
