Shadwell Opera, fresh from its success at the Edinburgh Fringe (5* Scotsman, Financial Times, The Herald, Three Weeks, Fringe Sell-Out Show, Royal Bank Of Scotland Herald Angel Award Winner), presents a new production of Benjamin Britten’s dark, masterful operatic adaption of William Shakespeare’s classic exploration of identity, dreams, sexuality, theatre, and the transiently hypnotic nature of love, A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM.
In the mystical atmosphere of St. Giles’ Church, you will be taken, transformed, complicit, implicit, post-rave, into a living, breathing, hallucinogenic, black-white, day-night, dark-light forest of dreams, where everything is reflection, illusion the only reality, theatricality the only possible truth; where though we wake, yet still we dream, where no thing is, as is may seem.
An all-star cast have joined forces to stage this production including an operatic debut from Clean Bandit MC Sseg, THURS 25 + FRI 26 FEB 2010. 8PM.
