Shadwell Opera presents...

    A Midsummer Night's Dream-Opera
    By Benjamin Britten

    20:00, Thu 25th February 2010 - Fri 26th February 2010 at church @ the castle: St Giles'
    Lent Week 6

    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.


    Full price - £10 Students - £6
