Subject:        Kingsley's Hamlet
 
Hello, just a wee query. I have been using Rosenberg's `Masks of Hamlet' as a
valuable reference for my research thesis, however I am unable to find silly
things like the dates of the performances he mentions, as well as the name of
the actress who played Ophelia! So, my query is this...does anyone know the
date of Ben Kingsley's Hamlet, (the year will suffice) and the name of the
actress who played Ophelia?
 
Cheers,

ps. Also, why is it that the actress who played Ophelia is referred to merely
as `Kingsley's Ophelia'? Does she not warrant the decency of a name? I realize
that we (royal, and otherwise) recognize certain performances via the
protagonist/star, but surely this is rather archaic? I thought that women had
gained some ground and freedom in the theatre wonder-world. Apparently not.

Is there a preferred "Metamorphoses," if your interest stems from Shakespeare?
