Ballet by John Neumeier based on Saxo Grammaticus and William Shakespeare

Hamlet

For more than 20 years, John Neumeier has repeatedly dealt with Shakespeare's most extensive drama – beginning with the fragmental "Hamlet Connotations", which were created in 1976 at the suggestion of Mikhail Baryschnikow. After a version for Stuttgart, he created "Amleth" for the re-opening of the renovated Copenhagen Opera House in 1985, in which he refers to the drama’s historical background as recounted in the Danmarkskronike of Saxo Grammaticus. In 1997, "Hamlet", set to the music of Michael Tippet, was created for the Hamburg Ballet. This synthesis of John Neumeier's creative engagement with the Hamlet themes now returns to the repertoire as a revival.
