Soprano Leah Partridge and baritone Corey McKern star in this thrilling and tuneful version of Shakespeare’s classic tale of the Prince of Denmark and his doomed love. French composer Ambroise Thomas’s grand opera has been a huge hit in opera houses around the world, but has never before been produced in Alabama. Opera Birmingham favorite Dona D. Vaughn returns to direct, and emerging star conductor Craig Kier makes his company debut on the podium. You will love this production! We guarantee it!
