Our Hamlet is dark, festive and spectacular. Actors are flirting, dancing and fighting right beside your seat. We created the show on the premises of the original story and on the foundation of Shakespeare’s play. We’ve combined the almost-forgotten Scandinavian legend from the eleventh century, the famous Shakespearean tragedy about Danish rulers, and, in some sense, the story that everyone finds unexpectedly close and understandable. The pain of loss, the craving for justice, the passion of love - all pushed to their limits.
We are excited to present to you Palme Theatre’s first work on a Shakespere play. Even though we are just a small Russian-language theatre company, we have under our belt such tough-to-stage classics as Chekhov’s The Seagull and Gogol’s Dead Souls. Now Hamlet is the pride and joy that we want to share with you.
Our gratitude goes out to those who made this production possible: the technical and creative team, to our patron Vladimir Liu Mingtai and, of course, to you for sharing this experience with us.
