Tales from the Opera Sunday 23 June 2013
"I have had a most rare vision. I have had a dream, past the wit of man to say what dream it was.” To celebrate the of composer Benjamin Britten, plus whatever class of a summer we've been given, Tales from the Opera partakes in A Midsummer Night's dream- the composer's entrancing setting of Shakespeare's festive comedy.
