Glyndebourne’s world premiere production of Brett Dean’s Hamlet has been shortlisted in the Opera category of the 2018 South Bank Sky Arts Awards.
Hamlet is the work of composer Brett Dean and librettist Matthew Jocelyn and was staged by director Neil Armfield. It had its world premiere at Glyndebourne Festival 2017, before being revived with a new cast for the 2017 Glyndebourne Tour.
The nomination is the latest awards success for the opera – in April it won the World Premiere of the Year category at the 2018 International Opera Awards, and was also shortlisted twice at the 2018 RPS Music Awards.
Now in its 22nd year, the South Bank Sky Arts Awards represent the entire spectrum of the arts, with categories for TV Drama, Classical Music, Theatre, Comedy, Dance, Film, Visual Art, Pop, Literature and Opera. The winners will be announced on Sunday 1 July 2018 at a ceremony hosted by Melvyn Bragg.
