A Midsummer Night's Dream archiveOn a midsummer's night Hermia and her lover Lysander flee from Athens and Demetrius - the man Hermia's father favours as a son-in-law. Demetrius follows, pursued by Helena who loves him in spite of being spurned in favour of Hermia. On the same night Bottom and his friends leave Athens to find somewhere quiet to rehearse their play which is to be performed at the wedding feast of Duke Theseus. Drawn into the woods they enter a world of magic, mystery and wonder. The City of London Sinfonia and Royal Shakespeare Company present a unique production that brings together the music of Mendelssohn and Shakespeare's play. A full symphony orchestra, soloists and chorus of women's voices provide the incidental music together with a company of actors. A special once-in-a-lifetime chance to experience what audiences of 150 years ago took for granted.
