“To be, or not to be..." You probably know the question, but perhaps not Cyril Teste's answer! A stage director famed for his fascinating fusion of theater and film, he stages the opera Hamlet for the first time in this production starring a brilliant group of soloists led by Stéphane Degout, Sabine Devieilhe, Laurent Alvaro, and Sylvie Brunet-Grupposo.
A seminal work of the French 19th-century repertoire premiered in 1868, Ambroise Thomas's Hamlet was a fixture of the Paris opera scene until the second half of the 20th century when it fell out of favor—an injustice that is happily being righted with this innovative and first-rate staging by Cyril Teste.
