The Tragedy of Hamlet: Prince of Denmark is a captivating fusion of theatre and dance featuring the collaborative work of legendary director Robert Lepage (Cirque du Solei, Stratford Festival) and renowned dancer/choreographer Guillaume Côté (National Ballet of Canada). Following its world premiere in Toronto last April and debut at the International Shakespeare Festival in Romania in May, this innovating re-imagining of Shakespeare’s timeless tragedy will make its U.S. debut at The Harris Theater for Music and Dance for a limited three performance engagement on Saturday, November 23 & Sunday, November 24.

This unique, wordless portrayal of Hamlet, a story of a man consumed by doubt and madness following his father’s tragic death, offers a fresh perspective on Shakespeare’s intricate exploration of the human condition while seamlessly blending classical and contemporary choreography. Côté and Lepage’s creation draws the audiences into a world of deception where phantoms and humans mingle on a minimal set. Light, shadow, and transparency play integral roles, creating a metaphorical reinterpretation of the timeless tale.

“A gripping, intensely athletic, and visually enchanting dance interpretation of Hamlet… Brilliant collaboration between Robert Lepage, Guillaume Côté and Show One Productions.”
– Margaret Atwood

Produced by Ex Machina, Côté Danse & Dvoretsky Productions. Presented by Show One Productions.
