Book your tickets for the opera Hamlet, a milestone of opera for which Krzysztof Warlikowski, ever fathoming the depths of the human psyche, redraws the Shakespearean contours.
Absent from France's foremost opera stage since 1938, Ambroise Thomas' masterpiece makes its grand return to the Paris Opera. Freely adapted from Shakespeare's play, Hamlet is part of the great tradition of romantic grand opera inherited from Meyerbeer, alternating spectacular and intimate scenes, including a ballet in the fourth act, and magnificent vocal bravura passages in a style in turn virtuoso and declamatory. Thomas Hengelbrock directs a brilliant cast led by Ludovic Tézier in a production by Krzysztof Warlikowski, a great explorer of the depths of the human psyche.
