CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April to August is actually postponed or cancelled. It now looks likely that little will return till 2021.

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.

New Production. Sung in English. Run time 2 hours 45 minutes. Out in the wood Oberon, the Fairy king and Tytania, his queen, are locked in dispute, and their conflict has turned nature upside down. In nearby Athens live two young women, best friends, one loved by two men, the other by none. When these four escape the harsh restrictions of the city for the freedom of the wood it's their relationships that are turned upside down, so much so that they hardly know each other - or even themselves. By contrast, Bottom the weaver - in the wood with his workmates rehearsing for some amateur theatricals - is always sure of himself, even when he's been made an ass of...Company Opera North.
