Original Production of La Monnaie – De Munt in Brussels 
Sunday 04 October 2020 to Monday 12 October 2020
New National Theatre Tokyo, Opera Palace

This new production, based on the production by David McVicar, is adapted to the “New Normal”, respecting social distancing and other COVID-19 prevention measures.

Based on Shakespeare's comedic masterpiece portraying the uproar created at the whims of a sprite, this opera was composed using about half the text of the original work. The drama unfolds with motifs and harmonies in Britten's inimitable style, revealing three vivid worlds: that of the fairies, the lovers and the tradespeople. The notable music, full of variety, will delight audiences and draw them into a world of fantasy, with particularly impressive highlights such as the boy soprano fairy ensemble and the countertenor fairy king Oberon.

Dates: Sunday 4 October - Monday 12 October 2020
Venue: New National Theatre Tokyo, Opera Palace
