Aaron Hastelow, left, with musical creator Cliff JonesAfter a sold-out performance at Indian River in July, Confederation Centre has announce an encore concert performance of Kronborg 1582 coming home to the Centre in Charlottetown for one night only. The rock opera starring PEI’s Aaron Hastelow as Hamlet will be presented on September 5 in the Homburg Theatre.

Kronborg features a Festival ensemble and orchestra of more than 30 performers. The Festival's Associate Artistic Director, Mary Francis Moore directed the production and musical direction is from Craig Fair.

This production was performed at the Historic St. Mary’s Church in Indian River on July 28. Based on the Shakespearean tragedy Hamlet, the rock opera was originally produced by Confederation Centre in 1975, starring Brent Carver and Beverly D’Angelo, and went on to play on Broadway. The musical was created by Cliff Jones and was originally commissioned by the CBC.

This concert performance replaces the originally scheduled concert performance of The House of Martin Guerre at this time, which is unable to be presented this season.

This performance also marks the kickoff to The Charlottetown Festival Theatre Conference, September 5 to 9. Tickets are available at the Confederation Centre Box Office online, in person, or via phone at 1-800-565-0278 or 902-566-1267.
