The Ophelia Connection

Ophelia by Alexandre Cabanel

 

Hamlet is Shakespeare’s most famous play and most famous character.

But when it comes to music inspired by the play, the Danish prince takes second place to the woman he once loved and then rejects.

In this hour, Shakespeare’s Ophelia in works by Brahms, Berlioz, Tchaikovsky, Liszt, Thomas, and more.
