Shakespeare’s HAMLET, directed by Nicholas Hytner, will be broadcast from the National’s Olivier Theatre. Following his celebrated performances at the National in Burnt by the Sun, The Revenger’s Tragedy, Philistines and The Man of Mode, Rory Kinnear plays Hamlet; the cast also includes Clare Higgins (Gertrude), Patrick Malahide (Claudius), David Calder (Polonius), James Laurenson (Ghost/Player King) and Ruth Negga (Ophelia). Hamlet, the prince of Denmark, sees his father’s ghost. Tormented with loathing and consumed by grief, he must avenge his father’s murder. What he cannot foresee is the destruction that ensues.
Following Hamlet, season two will continue on January 13, 2011 with the Tony Award winning musical, FELA! about Afrobeat legend Fela Anikulapo-Kuti starring original cast member and 2010 Tony nominee Sahr Ngaujah.
