#52 HAMLET

PRESENTED BY SHAKESPEARE'S GLOBE
BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
In English

[EN] The world renowned Shakespeare’s Globe will perform Hamlet, known as Shakespeare’s greatest play at Théâtres de la Ville as part of their “Globe to Globe”-project.

Learning of the king his father’s death, Hamlet comes home to find his uncle married to his mother and installed on the Danish throne. At night, the ghost of the old king demands that Hamlet avenge his “foul and most unnatural murder”.

Encompassing political intrigue and sexual obsession, philosophical reflection and violent action, tragic depth and wild humour, Hamlet is Shakespeare’s “poem unlimited”, a colossus in the story of the English language and the fullest expression of Shakespeare’s genius.

Lasting only two-and-a-half hours and touring to every country in the world over two years, a handful of travelling players will perform a raw, thrillingly elemental production of this inexhaustible play.

» Under Dromgoole’s direction, this rendition of Hamlet tunes into a lighter spirit, that many of us probably never saw within it. What Dromgoole outlines is that comedies and tragedies often tread opposite sides of the same coin. Susumba.com (Jamaica), 2014

[DE]» Alles stellt sich gänzlich in den Dienst von Shakespeares ebenso brillanten, wie wortmächtigen Text und die Spielfreude, mit der sich die Darsteller ihren Versen hingeben, wird so zum wundersamen Widerhall der trotz scharfsichtiger Zeichnung menschlicher Laster und Gelüste stets wohlgesinnten Porträtierung der Figuren. Luxemburger Wort

» Die Schauspieler des Londoner Globe Theatres setzen auf Mimik und Gestik statt auf ein pompöses Bühnenbild. (…) Dabei zeichnet sich das Schauspiel durch die Nähe der Künstler zum Publikum aus. Trierischer Volksfreund.
