Having toured the world for over a quarter century, Robert Carsen’s delightful staging of A Midsummer Night’s Dream finally makes its way stateside. This jovial adaptation of Shakespeare’s popular comedy follows a throng of characters as they get tangled in complicated love triangles, mistaken identities, and alarming transformations.

Leading the cast as Oberon and Tytania are Tim Mead—praised for his “seductive and commanding” interpretation (The Guardian)—and the “sexy and flirty” (The Wall Street Journal) soprano Anna Christy.
