Benjamin Britten’s stunning operatic adaptation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream transports us to a topsy-turvy world filled with romance, magic, mayhem, and heavy doses of comedy. What at first seems like a traditional fairy tale reveals a deeper psychology in which purity, madness, and cruelty crash up against each other. Follow the misadventures of fairies, nobles, and craftsmen whose parallel stories finally converge in a hilarious play-within-a-play performance of “Pyramus and Thisbe.” This is bound to be an evening of pure magic and unexpected surprises!
