Photos from Hamlet written by the English playwright William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616) and produced at the Vienna Volkstheater with Aleksandër Moisiu (or Moissi, 1879 - 1935) playing as Hamlet around 1920

"In Berlin, Moissi was acclaimed for his 1906 performance of Oswald in Ibsen's Ghosts and in the premiere of Wedekind's Spring Awakening. His interpretations in the leading roles of Hamlet, Œdipus, Faust, and many others, were celebrated at the time, as were his voice and emotional range. Beside the Deutsches Theater, he performed at the Vienna Volkstheater and the Theater in der Josefstadt."
