An operatic version of Shakespeare's fantasy play. With great skill and sensitivity, Britten presents the play as a charming opera, retaining the serene magic of the forest, the distress of the lovers, Puck's mischief, and Bottom's lamentably amateur theatre company. A revival of the original 1981 production now supported by The Columbia Foundation, San Francisco.

Performers Michael Chance (Oberon), Lisa Larsson (Tytania), Gordon Gietz (Lysander), William Dazeley (Demetrius), Ann Taylor (Hermia), Madeline Bender (Helena), Henry Waddington (Quince), Geoffrey Moses (Snug), Henry Newman (Staveling), Barry Banks (Flute), Christopher Saunders (Snout), Peter Rose (Bottom), Matthew Best (Theseus), Jean Rigby (Hippolyta).
