Scottish Opera: A Midsummer Night's Dream

Dominic Hill, Artistic Director of the Citizens Theatre, returns to Scottish Opera to bring his Shakespearean expertise to Britten’s beguiling work. Designer Tom Piper, famed for the Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red installation at the Tower of London will bring this tale to life. Fairies, magic, comedy and more – all come together in an otherworldly blend of imagination and reality.

New production. Supported by The Alexander Gibson Circle. Sung in English with English supertitles.
