Song of the Goat Theatre

Songs of Lear and Hamlet: A Commentary

May 11–12, 2019

Directed by Grzegorz Bral
Music by Jean-Claude Acquaviva and Maciej Rychły


Warsaw-based 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 king's story as a dramatic oratorio blending Corsican folk music and Gregorian chant. Hamlet: A Commentary-—a prequel to Shakespeare's Hamlet, set two months before the actual play begins—features 14 actors interpreting the characters, events, and emotions of the Hamlet story through polyphonic song.
