Although the performers were excellent including Simon Keenleyside, Alek Shrader, Isabel Leonard,
and Audrey Luna, the overall production design exciting, and good camera work, the music seemed on one level throughout. I didn't find myself as emotionally involved by Ades work as I have by newer works by such a composer as Jake Hegge. I'm grateful I can still see the work of the MET at the local cinema and I look forward to seeing more by the MET in the months ahead.
I had not seen a Met HD production before and was astounded by the production. Simon Keenlyside
was extraordinary in the title role and brought a great depth to the role of Hamlet. Earlier this year I was lucky enough to catch Jude Law in Hamlet on Broadway so this was an added treat and an interesting take on the Hamlet tale. A superb job by the female leads also in the roles. I'll definitely attend more in the future.
