Vladimir Jurowski, who conducted the production, was awarded the Conductor of the Year prize. Hamlet was commissioned towards the end of Jurowski’s time as Glyndebourne’s Music Director (2001 – 2013) and marked his first return to the company since completing his tenure.

The new opera is the work of composer Brett Dean and librettist Matthew Jocelyn and was staged by director Neil Armfield. It had its world premiere at Glyndebourne Festival 2017 and was staged with a new cast for the 2017 Glyndebourne Tour.

Hamlet has also been shortlisted in two categories of the 2018 RPS [Royal Philharmonic Society] Music Awards - Large-Scale Composition and Opera and Music Theatre. Winners will be announced on 9 May.
