Good news for opera fans

Following the huge success of Barry Kosky’s Saul last year, the Adelaide Festival again brings home grown opera talent to the fore. This year’s festival headliner will be director Neil Armfield and composer Brett Dean’s Hamlet, fresh from a season at Glyndebourne.

“British tenor Allan Clayton will reprise his role as Hamlet for the Australian season, supported by American baritone Rod Gilfry as Claudius and British tenor Kim Begley as Polonius. Australian sopranos Cheryl Barker and Lorina Gore will take on the roles of Gertrude and Ophelia respectively. The production will also feature the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and State Opera of South Australia chorus.”
