Hamlet: Live performance and community seminar at St. John's


  • St. John’s College 1160 Camino De Cruz Blanca Santa Fe, NM, 87505 United States

St. John’s of Santa Fe is offering a two-part community seminar on Hamlet. 

Shakespeare not only lived and wrote during the scientific revolution of the early seventeenth century, he also explored poetically its profound philosophical and cultural consequences. In this seminar, we turn to Hamlet to explore how Shakespeare illuminates the beginnings of modern science on both the stage and on the page.

Part 1: Seminar attendees view the performance by St. John’s students on either Wednesday, February 17 or Saturday, February 20, both at 7:30 p.m. at St. John’s College.

Attend the live production of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. The performance will be the focus of the second half of the seminar. Admission to the performance of your choice, based on availability, is included in the seminar fee.

This performance will be the basis of the seminar: 
Part 2: Sunday, February 21, 1 – 4 p.m.

1 - 2:30 p.m.: The text of the play as a written work will be discussed.
2:45 – 4 p.m.: The theatrical performance of Hamlet will be discussed.

$80 per person, which includes both the performance and the seminar.
