Glyndebourne has announced that Brett Dean’s hit new opera, Hamlet, will be televised on BBC Four this autumn, following its acclaimed world premiere at Glyndebourne Festival 2017.
The broadcast offers another chance to see the critically-acclaimed production, directed by Neil Armfield, and with a stellar cast including Allan Clayton, Barbara Hannigan, Sarah Connolly and John Tomlinson.
Sebastian F. Schwarz, General Director of Glyndebourne, said:
‘Hosting the world premiere of Hamlet at this year’s Festival made for a truly memorable summer and it was thrilling to watch the opera take shape in the hands of an exceptionally talented group of artists and performers. I’m delighted that this BBC Four broadcast will give yet more people the chance to see this exciting new opera.’
The production is also being revived for Glyndebourne Tour 2017 with a new cast. Following three performances at Glyndebourne, it can be seen in Canterbury, Norwich, Milton Keynes and Plymouth between October and December.
