Richard Burton’s Hamlet Screening

March 6, 2014

Tuesday 18 March 7pm

Richard Burton makes his debut in the theatre that bears his name and for one night only! Marking the 50th anniversary of Burton’s acclaimed Hamlet on Broadway and 30 years since his untimely passing, the Royal Welsh College pays tribute to a Welsh Great by presenting the first screening in Wales of Sir John Gielgud’s classic 1964 theatrical production. Filmed during a Broadway performance for release in US cinemas, this is a Hamlet acted in rehearsal clothes, stripped of all extraneous trappings with Richard Burton at the very height of his acting powers.

Presented by kind permission of Sally Burton, Onward Production Ltd. and Paul Brownstein Productions
