Metropolitan Opera - Hamlet

Closed June 9, 2022

New opera doesn't often get to sound this good...Shakespeare offers a gauntlet to composers that shouldn't always be picked up, but Dean's Hamlet rises to the challenge.

Why See Metropolitan Opera - Hamlet?

Classical & Opera

The acclaimed opera arrives in New York

Brett Dean's acclaimed production of Hamlet arrives in New York in 2022. The production, which received rave reviews upon its debut at the Glyndebourne Festival in 2017, stunned audiences and critics for its riveting and contemporary score and spellbinding performances. 

Luckily for Met Opera goers much of the original cast, as well as the Opera's director (Neil Armfield), have re-joined the production as it makes its New York debut. Including, tenor Allan Clayton in the titular role. Soprano Brenda Rae will star as Orphelia, Dame Sarah Connolly as Gertrude, and the legendary Sir John Tomlinson as the ghost of Hamlet's father.
