Presented as part of the 2020 International Women’s Day, Ophelia Rises is a fresh and ultimately uplifting retelling of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet from the empowered perspective of a fierce teenaged girl.

She is joined on stage by five of our country’s most respected strings players – violinists Rebekah Wolkstein and Drew Jurecka, violist Charlotte Paradis, cellist Rachel Desoer, and double bassist Joe Philips.
