Britten's A Midsummer Night's Dream
April 29-May 10, 2011
Ah, the thrill of the chase. Over hill, over dale, girdling the earth in forty minutes - when the words are mostly Shakespeare, even the libretto sings. Britten gives us a stageful of sprites and mortals in a touching and very funny take: a dreamscape. Or is it a nightmare? Depends on how you feel about unrequited lover, and donkeys.
