… Are you sure That we are awake? It seems to me That yet we sleep, we dream.
A new thrilling and innovative look at the beloved Shakespearean fairytale, blending music, movement, and verse in an unforgettable voyage to the wilderness of fantasy.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of William Shakespeare’s most-known and best-loved works. And yet, just like any dream, the plot is hard to pin down. Crossed lovers, an Athenian wedding feast, an amateur theatrical company made of carpenters, tinkers and tailors, and of course the King of Fairyland Oberon, his Queen Titania and all their train find themselves enmeshed in and out of dark woods during nights of confusion and revelry. Will the lovers be restored to their rightful match by the end? And will everyone come out of the woods unscathed?
This production will also embrace pioneering virtual world technology, creating an immersive mixed reality experience for wider audiences to enjoy.
