Shakespeare’s Globe will bring William Shakespeare’s riveting drama “Hamlet” to the Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts, University of California, Davis.
Presented as a just added event to the 2012–13 10th anniversary Mondavi Center season, “Hamlet” will be performed on Thursday, Nov. 1 and Friday, Nov. 2 at 8 p.m. There will also be a school matinée on Friday, Nov. 2.
Shakespeare’s Globe reinvents Elizabethan touring theater for the 21st century. Using stage design inspired by images from the time, the Globe’s players recreate all the fun and excitement of early theater, with Jackson Hall ideally configured to catch the nuances of one of the Bard’s great dramas.
Featuring some of Shakespeare’s best known speeches, this pared-down production of “Hamlet” brilliantly captures the corrupting influence of power, the intensity of young love and the passion of a wronged man.
