This production of Hamlet designed/directed for the Lyric Opera by Thaddeus Strassberger is out on the road again, after traveling to Washington National Opera in 2010 and receiving praise. Not only is Mr. Strassberger’s production of Hamlet heading to Minnesota next season, but he is also designing and directing a new production of Nabucco, also featuring Brenda Harris, to kick-off Minnesota Opera’s 50th season.
