A Midsummer Night's Dream, the opera, is adapted from William Shakespeare's play by the same name. The classic comedy consists of romantic tangles, brought on by interference from the fairy world, connected to the celebration of the “royal wedding” of Duke Theseus of Athens and the Amazonian queen, Hippolyta. Set in an enchanted woodland, it explores themes of love, betrayal and especially fantasy. Staged in cooperation with the School of Music featuring the KU Symphony Orchestra.
