What happens at night when the lights go out? Delicious and dark, entertaining and erotic, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is an intoxicating blend of mortals, mechanicals and faeries, all thrown together in one place at one time. Benjamin Britten’s setting of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedy has everything from gorgeous shimmering string melodies to a hilarious parody of bel-canto opera. Set in an English boarding school, the Seattle Opera Young Artists production explores the notion that you don’t need a phoenix-feather wand in order to make magic. We will perform the opera in English in the intimate Meydenbauer Theater. This is a chance to get up close to the magic of A Midsummer Night’s Dream in a way that is not possible in more conventional opera houses. Come and enjoy our young and energetic cast as they realize that the course of true love never does run smooth!
Tickets are $35 for adults and $15 for students.
