A new adaptation of William Shakespeare's classic work "Hamlet" was staged at the Beijing Comedy Theater on March 2.

Produced by the National Center for the Performing Arts (NCPA), the adaptation incorporates the role of translator Zhu Shenghao, whose story moves in parallel with the original plot.

The adaptation amplifies the comedic elements of "Hamlet" to give the play a black-humor spin, according to the NCPA website.

Performed by Chinese artists, the adaptation will show until March 10.
