Britten A Midsummer Night's Dream

Following our run of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Garsington Opera this summer, we bring a semi-staged performance to the Royal Albert Hall stage as part of this year’s BBC Proms.

In a mystical world, humans are muddled and misled by the inhabitants of a fairy world. Becoming the playthings of the quarrelling King Oberon and Queen Tytania. This tale of enchantment, madness and love is brought to life through Britten’s extraordinary orchestration, creating a sound-world of unearthly beauty.

Sung in English with English subtitles
