Notes from the music for context:
The Ayre bites shrewdly… (offstage)
The King doth wake tonight and takes his rouse Look my Lord, it comes... (like a shift in the air)… it beckons you
The Ghost speaks
The Ghost vanishes
Hamlet rails against fate
Oh cursed spite! That ever I was born to set it right.
Filmed on location at Tilbury Fort, Essex and St. James's Spanish Place, London
