William Shakespeare: A Midsummer Night’s Dream NT Live

Όνειρο Καλοκαιρινής Νύχτας

Overview

A feud between the king and queen of fairies further complicates the lives of two couples of lovers who take refuge in a forest of Athens. Mortals and immortals fall in love, quarrel, swap identities and chase each other in a fairy tale with comical as well as romantic scenes that lead to unpredictable situations.

After the success of his staging of Julius Caesar (NT Live, 2018), Nicholas Hytner creates a dream world with flying fairies, contagious fogs and moonlight revels. A cast of fine actors in Shakespeare’s most famous and popular comedy: Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Oliver Chris (Green Wing, NT Live: Young Marx), David Moorst (NT Live: Allelujah!), and Hammed Animashaun (The Barber Shop Chronicles).

Pre-recorded broadcast from the Bridge Theatre in London – With Greek subtitles
