A Midsummer Night's Dream

On 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.
Author Shakespeare

Abridged. Garsington Opera's Artistic Director, Douglas Boyd, collaborates with Gregory Doran, Artistic Director of the Royal Shakespeare Company, on a venture involving artists from both companies. Mendelssohn's shimmeringly beautiful and evocative music will bring fresh illumination to Shakespeare's brilliantly intertwined, triple-layered dream-world, where lovers, fairies and rude mechanicals confuse and pursue one another in a wood near Athens. Sung and spoken in English
