Marston’s two act minimalist ballet, Hamlet, see the Shakespearean play from the perspective of Hamlet’s mother, Queen Gertrude. The score is a compelling compilation arranged by Philip Feeney, which organizes the haunting music of Alfred Schnittke, Henry Purcell and Arvo Pärt, together with additional original music by Feeney himself, into an integrated and powerful score that beautifully underlines the intensity of the narrative.
