Gala Theatre
Millenium Place, Durham. DH1 1WA

Join Durham’s finest opera ensemble, accompanied by players from DUOS for their annual opera in the Gala theatre.

Durham Opera Ensemble are proud to present Benjamin Britten’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. This is a brilliant adaptation of the Shakespearian comic classic. Britten’s beguiling composition is the perfect accompaniment to the tumultuous text. Allow yourself to step into this spellbinding tale of lovers. In the depths of the enchanted forest, watch as their worlds collide on a mystical midsummer night, swarmed by mischievous fairies and rustics. As they venture into the unknown they are faced with an array of trials and tribulations. Will their love conquer evil?

Following our sell-out Gala production of Carmen, join us in February 2017 as we present the production of Britten’s ‘A Midsummer Nights Dream’. This year’s cast and production team will create a spectacular collaboration of voices, costumes and staging to portray this enchanting opera
