Elsinore, by Robert Lepage, is a solo-performer production of Hamlet that was first performed in Toronto in April 1996. An earlier French-language production of Elsineur was performed in Montreal in September 1995. The play is performed with an enormous computer-controlled multimedia machine made up of modular flats that can be either performed or projected upon.

Please see the Critical Introduction to Elsinore by Ric Knowles published in Canadian Theatre Review 111.
