This storyboard does not have a description.
Hamlet and Laertes are both stabbed. The queen dies by the poison in the cup, Laertes is slowly dying by his own poisoned sword. Hamlet, in a fury, runs Claudius through with the poisoned sword and forces him to drink down the rest of the poisoned wine.
"O, yet defend me, friends, I am but hurt"
"Here, thou incestious, murd’rous, damned Dane, drink off this potion! Is thy union here? Follow my mother!"
Hamlet tells Horatio that he is dying and exchanges a last forgiveness with Laertes, who dies after this exchange with Hamlet.
"Heaven make thee free of it! I follow thee. I am dead, Horatio..."
The sound of marching echoes through the hall. Hamlet tells Horatio not to commit suicide despite all the tragedies, but stay alive and tell his story. He says that he wishes Fortinbras to be made King of Denmark and then he dies. Horatio says that he will tell everyone the story that led to these tragic events, and Fortinbras orders for Hamlet to be carried away like a soldier.
"Of that I shall have also cause to speak, and from his mouth whose voice will draw on more... Even while men’s minds are wild, lest more mischance on plots and errors happen."
"Let four captains bear Hamlet like a soldier to the stage... to have prov’d most royal... the soldiers’ music and the rite of war speak loudly for him.."
