Hamlet, directed by Vidas Bareikis, is one of the most famous productions of the National Kaunas Drama Theatre. Hamlet’s personality in this play is neither that of a romantic hero nor of an idealist – he is just a man looking for the truth. His feelings are real, ranging from love and hectic revenge to mourning, rage and desperation. All the emotions create a real human being with all possible colours and shades. Perhaps that is the reason why the play is so relevant after hundreds of years. The play will be translated into English. For more information, please click here. Tickets here.
