Shadwell Opera, 2009 Herald Angel Award winners, return to Rosslyn Chapel with Mozart’s 'The Magic Flute' and a new production of Benjamin Britten's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'. Don’t miss out on Cambridge University’s best young opera singers: 'star power in spades … my show of the festival' (Scotsman). Shadwell Opera’s production of Mozart’s Masonic masterpiece received wide critical acclaim at last year’s Fringe. The production returns this year, updated to further the dialogue with the mysterious symbolism of Rosslyn Chapel, and is complemented by a new production of Britten’s 'A Midsummer Night’s Dream'. 'Rosslyn Chapel’s renaissance has been sealed by Shadwell Opera' (Financial Times).
Shadwell Opera, 2009 Herald Angel Award winners, complement their revival of 'The Magic Flute' at Rosslyn Chapel with a daring new production of Benjamin Britten’s masterful operatic adaption of Shakespeare’s classic play. In the mystical atmosphere of Rosslyn Chapel, you will be taken, transformed, 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 truth; where though we wake, yet still we dream. Don’t miss this beautiful exploration of identity, dreams, sexuality, theatre, and the transient nature of love.
