Shakespeare’s Hamlet, directed by Nicholas Hytner, will be broadcast from the National’s Olivier Theatre.

Hamlet, the prince of Denmark, sees his father’s ghost. Tormented with loathing and consumed by grief, he must avenge his father’s murder. What he cannot foresee is the destruction that ensues.
