A magical play replete with motifs, entanglements and mysteries, which true theatre-goers must see at least once in their lifetime.
Hermia is to marry Demetrius, yet she loves Lysander. The two lovers plan to elope, but they reveal their intention to Helena, who feels affection for Demetrius and convinces him to pursue them. The action is entered by Oberon, who receives from Puck a magic flower, evoking love in people… The chaotic story takes place during a midsummer night, when every slumber may bring forth a new dream. But where do such dreams end up — what do we actually remember from them? When the world around us begins spinning, it is hard to say where its boundaries are.
The Bard’s classic comedy, which returns to the stage with each generation; a fantastic show of motifs, plots, mysteries and secrets, which true theatre-goers must see at least once in their lifetime.
