Think you know Hamlet, with those famous speeches, insane characters, the play within a play, the intimations of incest, parricide, regicide, fratricide, suicide and plain old homicide? And don't forget that last scene, with dead bodies all over the place. What this tale needs is music, lots of it, and today you can catch the live HD simulcast of the Metropolitan Opera's production of Ambroise Thomas' version, which premiered at the Paris Opera in 1868. It purportedly has a happy ending, although how on earth this is possible we have no idea. In this production, Simon Keenlyside sings Hamlet, Marlis Petersen is Ophélie and veteran Jennifer Larmore is Gertrude. Louis Langrée conducts. The performance begins at 1 p.m. and will last nearly four hours. —Sarah Ewald
