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. Sung in English, with surtitles projected above the stage.
