Le Songe d'une nuit d'été

From 18 february 2015 to 25 may 2015
Running time : 2h15 sans entracte
Salle Richelieu

In Athens, Theseus is preparing to celebrate his wedding to Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons. In the forest nearby, Oberon, king of the fairies, is arguing with his wife Titania about their many past and present conquests. To this we add two pairs of thwarted lovers––Hermia, who is in love with Lysander, but promised to Demetrius, who is loved by Helena––and a group of craftsmen rehearsing a tragedy for the king’s wedding, under the direction of the larger than life Bottom. All of these characters end up crossing paths in the forest where Oberon’s spells and the antics of the sprite Puck will sow confusion during a night where nobody will know for certain if what they are experiencing is real, game or fantasy. A dream perhaps?
