Brett Dean

Director Neil Armfield brings this contemporary masterpiece to New York, with music by Australia's Brett Dean, conductor Nicholas Carter in his Met debut, Allan Clayton as Hamlet, and Brenda Rae as Ophelia.

When Australian composer Brett Dean’s Hamlet had its world premiere at the Glyndebourne Festival in 2017, The Guardian declared, “New opera doesn’t often get to sound this good … Shakespeare offers a gauntlet to composers that shouldn’t always be picked up, but Dean’s Hamlet rises to the challenge.” Now, this riveting contemporary masterpiece arrives at the Met, with Neil Armfield, who directed the work’s premiere, bringing his acclaimed staging to New York. Many of the original cast members have followed, including tenor Allan Clayton in the title role. Nicholas Carter makes his Met debut conducting a remarkable ensemble, which also features soprano Brenda Rae as Ophelia, mezzo-soprano Sarah Connolly as Gertrude, baritone Rod Gilfry as Claudius, and legendary bass John Tomlinson as the ghost of Hamlet’s father.

+ Pre-screening lecture begins at 12pm with screening to follow at 1pm.
GENERAL ADMISSION:  $34 for screening + discussion ($29 for BAM & Met members).
