A Midsummer Night's Dream
Set in a beautiful forest on a moon-drenched night, Benjamin Britten's operatic adaptation of William Shakespeare's play centers on a quartet of lovers that manages to run afoul of Oberon (David Daniels) and Tytania (Ofelia Sala), the king and queen of the fairies. The composer assigns different sounds for the fairies and the humans, providing a dramatic musical component to complement the bard's famous words.
