From May 11 through 13, 2012.
The South Miami Dade Cultural Arts Center presents Asolo Repertory Theatre’s Hamlet, Prince of Cuba, adapted and directed by Asolo Rep Producing Artistic Director Michael Donald Edwards and featuring a Spanish translation by Pulitzer Prize-winner Nilo Cruz. Hamlet, Prince of Cuba will run from May 11 through 13, 2012. The show will be presented both in English and Spanish with English supertitles.
Perhaps the most well known piece in Shakespeare’s canon, Hamlet has captivated playgoers for more than 400 years. Now, Miami audiences will be among the first to see a distinctively Cuban Hamlet which reveals new perspectives on the classic work, all while staying true to the essence of Shakespeare’s original story. This new adaptation is a fresh portrayal of a son’s struggle to pursue justice for father, and the consequences that threaten to destroy the lives of those he loves.
Spanish with English supertitle performances will be May 11 at 8 p.m. and May 13 at 3 p.m. and English performances will be Saturday, May 12 at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. Hamlet, Prince of Cuba will feature guest artist Frankie J. Alvarez as Hamlet, Gisela Chípe as Ophelia, Emilio Delgado as Claudius, Mercedes Herrero as Gertrude and Andhy Mendez as Laertes.
