A Midsummer Night's Dream

By William Shakespeare

The RSC collaborates with Garsington Opera for the first time to stage an abridged version of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream performed by members of the Royal Shakespeare Company with Mendelssohn's enchanting music, sung and played the Garsington Opera Singers and Orchestra, and conducted by Douglas Boyd. 

Performed at Garsington Opera as part of their 2015 season before transferring to The Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford and The Queen Elizabeth Hall in London.

"The result is a perfect marriage of words and music...a superior performance"
The Guardian
