Why See A Midsummer Night's Dream?

returning production

Robert Carsen's exquisite production of Shakespeare's classic comedy returns to the London Coliseum in 2018. An expert blending of dreams and reality, the story of warring fairies, quarreling lovers and the hapless actors caught in the middle has never looked so supernaturally inviting. Set to Benjamin Britten's winding score, don't miss this chance to enjoy A Midsummer Night's Dream like never before.

ill met by moonlight

A Midsummer Night's Dream focuses on three parallel stories while dealing with the universal theme of love and its complications. It follows the trials of two couples as they camp in a magical forest, the world of the fairy King and Queen who inhabit said forest and a group of tradesmen attempting to stage a production of 'Pyramus and Thisby' for the wedding of the Duke of Athens. In true Shakespearean comedy-style, these stories don't stay separate for long and worlds collide in a spectacularly hilarious fashion. Love, action, magic and comedy mix to create a truly magical spell.
