Ah, the madness of love. Britten’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream has become one of the most frequently performed operas from the second half of the 20th century. From the ethereal beauty of the fairies to the rough-and-tumble Mechanicals, the musical setting is filled with homage and satire, from baroque through Schoenberg.
