Synopsis


Be part of a major new operatic work - join us for the world premiere of Brett Dean’s new opera based on Shakespeare’s best-known tragedy.

Brett Dean’s colourful, energetic, witty and richly lyrical music expertly captures the modernity of this timeless tale, while Matthew Jocelyn’s libretto is pure Shakespeare.

A cast of some of the finest singing actors of the moment will bring Hamlet to life. British tenor and Glyndebourne favourite Allan Clayton will play Hamlet. British mezzo-soprano Sarah Connolly will play Gertrude and Canadian soprano Barbara Hannigan will make her Glyndebourne debut as Ophelia. Legendary British bass John Tomlinson plays The Ghost of Old Hamlet.

Hamlet will be conducted by Vladimir Jurowski, Glyndebourne’s former Music Director.

Sung in English with English supertitles.
