A Midsummer Nights Dream Synopsis
Following its South Bank Show Award-winning productions of The Turn of the Screw and Peter Grimes, ENO continues to refresh its Britten repertoire with a new staging of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Magically mixing 20th-century modernism, rich romanticism and quasi-Purcellian fantasy, Britten's score breathes a unique air all of its own, climaxing in a hilarious parody of Italian bel canto opera for the rude mechanicals' play.
