The king and queen of the fairies are feuding, two mortal couples break up and make up thanks (or no thanks!) to the juice of a magic flower, and the Duke of Athens is getting ready to wed the Queen of the Amazons—there’s a whole lot going on in the forest just outside Athens!
Benjamin Britten's A Midsummer Night's Dream, based on Shakespeare's play, opens January 23.
