Very happy that the National Theatre will be broadcasting again to cinemas Sir Nicholas Hytner’s acclaimed 2010 production of Hamlet, on which I was composer, on the day that the NT turns 50 – 22nd October 2013. The production stared Rory Kinnear in the title role and gained numerous five star reviews.
The encore screenings also include Frankenstein directed by Danny Boyle, on which I was music associate with electro duo Underworld and staring Benedict Cumberbatch, which is being shown later in October.
As bonus material leading up to the broadcast, the NT has also released the original programme in PDF form here. Below is the trailer (featuring my score) and some snippets of the soundtrack I released in 2010.

I’ve recently completed the worldwide cinema promo for the National Theatre’s second season of NT Live. It will be shown in cinemas globally for the next twelve months, along with a series of plays all broadcast live from the National Theatre.
Part of this season will show Hamlet, directed by Nicholas Hytner, which I have written the music to, and will be broadcast on 9th December 2010.
