Beijing Dance Theater "Hamlet"
Please note, this event has expired.
A striking production of “Hamlet” from Beijing Dance Theater explores Hamlet’s psychological landscape from a fresh perspective while confronting his melancholy, compassion for humanity, and his doubt in the face of death and destruction.
Beijing Dance Theater, one of China’s most distinguished dance companies, with its stunning dancers, returns to the U.S. with Hamlet. In 2006, FENG Xiogang invited WANG Yuanyuan to work on his film The Banquet, based on Shakespeare’s Hamlet. This inspired WANG to create a ballet telling the story of Hamlet through the eyes the melancholy prince, who struggles with power, family, revenge and love.
