The works of Shakespeare have inspired more operatic adaptations than any other writer's. Simon Keenlyside and Marlis Petersen bring two of Shakespeare's unforgettable characters to life in this new production of Ambroise Thomas's Hamlet. For the role of Ophelia, the French composer created an extended mad scene that is among the greatest in opera.
