Songs of Lear and Hamlet: A Commentary
Directed by Grzegorz Bral
Music by Jean-Claude Acquaviva and Maciej Rychly

 

An audience favorite at Edinburgh’s Fringe Festival, Warsaw-based troupe Song of the Goat Theatre integrates movement, song, and text to mine historical works for fresh insights. The award-winning Songs of Lear retells the tragic king’s story as a dramatic oratorio blending Corsican folk music and Gregorian chant—a production the New York Times called “viscerally awe inspiring.” Hamlet: A Commentary is a prequel to Shakespeare’s Hamlet, set two months before the actual play begins, and features 14 actors interpreting the characters, events, and emotions of the Hamlet story through polyphonic song.
