Come to the forest and be magically swept away in a midsummer’s night. Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears adapted this opera’s libretto from Shakespeare’s comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream, telling its story of dreams and desires. A quartet of young lovers find themselves lost in the magical woods, a land ruled by the fairies. Puck, the mischievous fairy, makes two men fall in love with the same woman. The lovers explore the forest, pursuing each other while Puck helps his master, Oberon, play a trick on the fairy queen, Titania. Conductor Andrew Bisantz and director David Gately transform the recently renovated Huntington stage into the woods of a midsummer’s night.

This performance has been selected as part of Boston Conservatory at Berklee’s spring 2024 Center Stage collection.

This performance is made possible, in part, by the generous support of The Mattina R. Proctor Foundation. 

This production will be livestreamed on April 18 and April 19 only.
