Boston Conservatory at Berklee presents the magical and hilarious opera adaptation of William Shakespeare’s comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream, by Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears, at the Huntington on Boston’s Avenue of the Arts.

Come to the forest and be magically swept away in a midsummer’s night. Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears adapted this opera’s libretto from Shakespeare’s comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream, telling its story of dreams and desires. A quartet of young lovers find themselves lost in the magical woods, a land ruled by the fairies. Puck, the mischievous fairy, makes two men fall in love with the same woman. The lovers explore the forest, pursuing each other while Puck helps his master, Oberon, play a trick on the fairy queen, Titania. Conductor Andrew Bisantz and director David Gately transform the recently renovated Huntington stage into the woods of a midsummer’s night.
