Hamlet – Special Event

Shakespeare’s best-known tragedy is given new life as a darkly complex opera, composed by Brett Dean, directed by Adelaide Festival’s Neil Armfield and conducted by Adelaide Symphony Orchestra’s Principal Conductor, Nicholas Carter.

In this Australian Premiere and Adelaide exclusive national operatic event of the year, Shakespeare’s timeless tale of love, betrayal and revenge is taken to new levels through Brett Dean’s vivid music, highlighted by sensational arias, ensembles and choruses. The musical grandeur extends beyond the stage with a semi-chorus and extra percussion adding to an all-encompassing, unforgettable theatrical experience.
