the Pharos Arts Foundation, as well as its great contribution to
society, which makes it more important in the long run than any

HAMLET THE SHOW
5 July 2014
Curium Amphitheatre, Limassol
Learning of his father’s death, Prince Hamlet comes home to find his
uncle married to his mother and installed on the Danish throne. At
night, the ghost of the old king demands that Hamlet avenge his ‘foul
and most unnatural murder’. Encompassing political intrigue and sexual
obsession, philosophical reflection and violent action, Hamlet is
Shakespeare’s ‘poem unlimited’, a colossus in the story of the English
language and the fullest expression of his genius.
