A Midsummer Night's Dream

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.
Music Benjamin Britten
Author Shakespeare
Adapted by Benjamin Britten
Adapted by Peter Pears
