Duration: 70 min

Our heroine, a mentally unstable young woman, identifies herself with her namesake, Shakespeare’s Ophelia. Reading is her only lifeline – when she reads she finds peace and serenity. Reading Hamlet, she tries to understand what happened to her. Words take shape, characters come alive and through the story told by Shakespeare, Ophelia relives the dramatic events of her own life.

“Hamlet” is a drama about life and death, and about the ambiguous relationships between people, offering the audience a journey through the darkest alleys of the human soul.

Yerevan International Shakespeare Theatre Festival

I want to congratulate all of us with the start of Yerevan 14th Shakespeare International Theater festival. This year we highlight the importance of students' participation. All our efforts would be in vain, if it was not for opening new stages and spaces for the youth.
We choose the opening location to be the Student Theater, since we all started our first steps there. I believe that the new "FEST OUT" program will be efficient and the audience will experience the positive feelings watching the outstanding performances.
Wish us all a very theatrically productive week!
