A touring production of the tragedy “Hamlet” by the London-based Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre will visit the Mondavi Center for three performances in November.

Presented as a “Just Added” event to 2012-13 10th anniversary Mondavi Center season, “Hamlet” will be presented Thursday and Friday, Nov. 1-2, at 8 p.m. There also will be a school matinee on Friday, Nov. 2.

The Shakespeare’s Globe company first came to the Mondavi Center in November 2009, with a single performance of the comedy “Love’s Labours Lost.” That performance was the first time a play had attracted a sold-out audience in Jackson Hall, and the Mondavi Center has been working on a return engagement for Shakespeare’s Globe for some time.

Tickets for “Hamlet” went on sale to Mondavi Center subscribers on Monday, and will go on sale to the general public on Sunday. Tickets are $35, $47 or $58 and may be purchased online at mondaviarts.org and the Mondavi Center ticket office, (530) 754-2787.

For details about the school matinee program, visit www.mondaviarts.org/education.

“Just Added” events tend to sell out, so patrons are encouraged to purchase seats in advance.

“Hamlet” probably is Shakespeare’s most famous tragedy and arguably his most famous play, though it is not generally staged as frequently as the playwright’s popular, durable comedies, which are the bread and butter of many summer outdoor theater festivals.

Featuring some of Shakespeare’s best known soliloquies and speeches — as well as a deadly finale that leaves the stage littered with bodies — “Hamlet” touches on topics including madness and murder, ghostly visitations and poison, loyalty and betrayal, and also examines the corrupting influence of power, the sometimes devastating intensity of young love and the passion of a wronged man deeply torn over how to seek justice.

Subscriptions for the Mondavi Center’s 10th anniversary season are on sale now at mondaviarts.org or (530) 754-2787. Single tickets for all other 2012-13 performances will go on sale Aug. 10.
