Opera in two parts, in English, with Hungarian surtitles

British music is often faulted for having failed to produce a significant composer for three hundred years after Purcell. If ever a later composer felt it incumbent on himself to look back into England’s past and write a piece based on the work of its most world-famous artistic genius, Shakespeare, it was Benjamin Britten, the first musical talent to be accepted into the international canon after such a long time. With its two dozen soloists and instrumental accompaniment of nearly the same size, A Midsummer Night’s Dream verges on chamber opera. Benjamin Britten’s production is only staged in Hungary quite rarely.
