Step into the magic

An operatic adaptation of Shakespeare’s comedy, A Midsummer Night’s Dream traces a tangled web of relationships hurtling towards catastrophe. In the woods, meet the feuding Fairy King and Queen, and in Athens, meet a confused quadrangle of lovers. As these characters’ stories intertwine, one thing is inevitable… magic, mischief and mayhem are sure to follow.

Britten’s music vividly sets the scene for a light-hearted and enchanting romp and is recognised as some of his best opera writing. Combined with Martin Duncan’s joyously theatrical production, expect an intoxicating atmosphere and plenty of laughs.
