Today [livejournal.com profile] cdybedahl and I went to see Hamlet at Stockholm Stadsteater. The lead was played by Helena Bergström. Some jumbled impressions from the play:

  • Helena B was hot in drag.
  • Was the slashy subtext of the Horatio-Hamlet relationship in the play from the start, or did they just choose to cast a woman as Horatio to be able to be as slashy as they wanted to?
  • That's a very good play, that is.
  • Helena B was really hot.
  • The scenography and music were great, too. I especially liked the way they used the signs of the zodiac - unobtrusive, but I felt it underscored the "star-crossed-ness" of Hamlet's fate.
  • There were lots of good actors in the cast, but Helena B was the hottest.



For those of you who are interested, there are pictures from the play at Stadsteatern's site. My mother is going to be so jealous that she couldn't make it to Stockholm before they close for the summer...
