Event Review: MN Opera: Hamlet
It was a big operatic production, so it is hard to say it was not entertainment worthy, but really not that good. Almost cliche use to fascist motif, the urban graffiti setting, actors in the audience to get the audience into the action, etc., but all done piecemeal. These bits did not add to the sense of the whole. I was left unsatisfied. Another example, Ophelia's death scene was interesting visually, but again it added little to the overall production, it was almost literally just stuck in. Personally, I would have liked to have seen the ghost done more technologically. The ghost was hardly ghostly at all. One good thing this production does is make you want to read Hamlet again, to wash the taste of this production out of your mind. One comment I overheard in the audience was that this was like a fan-fiction version of Hamlet. I would give it two starts out of five. The singing was quite good.
