From the adaptation of Shakespeare’s version by Alexandre Dumas, Jules Barbier et Michel Carré wrote a romantic and spectacular libretto in which Ophelia shines with a peculiar radiance. With its virtuosic arias, arresting ensembles and vivid orchestra – and the appearance of the saxophone – Ambroise Thomas composed one of the finest scores of the French repertoire.

Cyril Teste stages and puts into perspective this metaphor for the power of drama.
Live recording in December at the Opéra Comique.
TV-direction: François Roussillon
Length: 180 mins approx.
