A Midsummer Night's Dream (Ein Sommernachtstraum)

Von William Shakespeare


2019 is the eighth year of the LEAF Festival (Languages, Education, Arts, Friendship) and it will be presented by Interkultur e.V., in Mülheim an der Ruhr.

 

Shakespeare will be represented by one of his well-known plays, ‘A Midsummer Night's Dream’, performed by the most famous British outdoor-theatre group, ‘The Lord Chamberlain’s Men. 

 

This is one of Shakespeare's most performed plays around the globe. The comedy revolves around the marriage between the Duke of Athens, Theseus, and the former Queen of the Amazons, Hippolyta. It is set in a magical forest in the middle of summer under a full moon. The fairies, who live in the enchanted forest, use their magical powers to manipulate the characters. This hilarious play will keep you laughing with its comical twists and turns, misunderstanding magical fantasy and, of course, stories of love.
