Shakespeare's Hamlet presented in Miskolc

Shakespeare's Hamlet was presented in the Miskolc National Theatre on 14 April under the direction of Csaba Kiss, a corresponding member of MMA.
Although for the director it was not the first time he directed Hamlet, he felt the need to reinterpret it again at the beginning of the third millennium. Nowadays the most important thing for him about the famous play is the question of sin and that of the possibilities of forgiving.
