*Jakub Hrůša replaces Kazushi Ono, who has had to withdraw for medical reasons

Step into a dreamworld where calamitous love potions are used to devastating effect on
a mad midsummer’s night. Spells are cast, flowers come alive, trees whisper and dance as a huge cast of lovers, fairies and folk-like rustics find their worlds colliding with riotous consequences.

Britten uses beguiling music in this classic retelling of Shakespeare’s comic masterpiece.

'A ravishing revival'
