Since ''Hamlet'' is almost always performed with cuts (performing the whole thing usually takes almost four hours), arguably ''every'' production is an adaptation, some even switching out scenes for pacing purposes (like the 2010 version did as explained [[http://blip.tv/file/4634599 here]] and [[http://blip.tv/file/4631899 here.]] Sometimes the basic idea is what's adapted, more or less faithfully, and little or none of the original language is used.

* DishonoredDead: As her death was likely a [[SuicideIsShameful suicide]], Ophelia's burial is rather low-key. When Laertes complains about this, the priest replies that she's only getting a cemetery plot at all on the orders of the king.
