Open Arts College Night - A Midsummer Night's Dream

See Event Description

Join us at Philadelphia's Academy of Music for opening night of Opera Philadelphia's presentation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Love triangles, mistaken identities, and alarming transformations—Shakespeare’s enchanting comedy gets the operatic treatment set to Benjamin Britten’s ethereal music. Follow the misadventures of fairies, nobles, and craftsmen over the course of one magical evening in the forest of Athens, recreated as a surreal dreamscape. Having toured the world for more than 25 years, director Robert Carsen’s renowned production finally makes its U.S. debut this winter.
