In August 1959, Benjamin Britten decided to compose an opera to mark the re-opening of the refurbished Jubilee Hall in Aldeburgh the following June. As this left no time for the libretto to be written anew, he chose to adapt with Peter Pears Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. While the libretto is a drastically reduced version of Shakespeare’s play, it retains the three distinct groups of characters – the fairies, the mechanicals and the Athenian lovers who enter the wood – and gives each group its own distinctive musical characteristics. So in a nutshell, the story remains the same – Oberon, the fairy king, and Tytania, his queen, are locked in a conflict which spills over into the human world…

This opera is completely faithful to the spirit of the original play and is one of the most successful operatic adaptations of a Shakespeare play. It is possibly the most beguiling and enchanting of all Britten’s operas, a work with a spell-binding atmosphere that inhabits a truly unique, dream-like world.

This production will be sung in English.
