A Midsummer Night’s Dream on the Big Screen

Concert or Performance

28 Feb 2021 Once Only Event

Grab some friends, pack your chairs and picnic rug and join us in Elder Park to watch this magical opera on the big screen under the stars.

Get ready to be taken to an enchanted forest and follow the misadventures of fairies, lovers, and craftsmen in this glorious adaptation of Shakespeare’s most beloved play.

Benjamin Britten’s musical transformation of Shakespeare’s most loved comedy is something of a miracle: apart from a single short sentence, every word is that of England’s finest poet; every fibre and comic nuance of the play is preserved.

And while a lesser composer might have merely adorned a masterpiece, he created a new one of his own: with its graceful haunting melodies, iridescent orchestration, headily perfumed harmony, and filigree-like vocal textures – there’s nothing in the repertoire like it.

Magical, otherworldly and playful, it bears all the hallmarks of his exceptional craft: drawing subtle and truthful comedic performances, letting his fairies rip as real kids and, in the finale, delivering a belly laugh-inducing riot.

We’ve endured a year like no other. Seize the chance to laugh and gasp with other human beings. Enter this blissful bubble and surrender to the trusted experts: Shakespeare, Britten and Armfield.
