Stills
`Martin Chocholousek’s stage design is indicative of the interpretation of the production - a chandelier with antlers combined with beat up tin lockers - creating the tension between the false nobility and the plebeian reality of the Elsinore Castle’. Hamlet in the Dejvicke Theatre - J. Kerbr on www.theatre.cz (accessed 12/2007).
Textual information
Translated into Czech by Jiri Josek; the dramaturg is Karel Tomanek.
Reviews
`The second half of the production is surprising - here the audience is confronted by an original, almost one-quarter hour "commentary", with no appearance of the gravediggers, no closing fighting scene, nor Fortinbras’ arrival on the scene. Hamlet in the Dejvicke Theatre - J. Kerbr on www.theatre.cz.
