Two of Shakespeare's unforgettable characters come to life in Patrice Caurier and Moshe Leiser's new production. Simon Keenlyside is "stunning," delivering a "haunting portrayal" in the title role, the New York Times says. Marlis Petersen "brings a luminous voice and winning grace to her performance" of Ophélie. Thomas's score "could not have a better champion than the conductor Louis Langrée."
