Hamlet's Ophelia Steps to the Front of the Stage in Franklin

More

The Franklin Stage Company present ‘The Ophelia Project’ this weekend.  In Shakespeare’s play ‘Hamlet’ she is the victim of Hamlet’s feigned madness and a reason for her brother Laertes to challenge Hamlet to a duel.  In operatic treatments she gives the composer an excuse to write a mad scene. But what is she really about? Soprano Cree Carrico and director Christopher Mirto present a musical exploration of this familiar, yet enigmatic character.
