A lovers tiff between fairy-king Oberon and his queen Tytania leads to a night of mistaken identities, confused lovers and alarming transformations.

Based on Shakespeare’s comedy, with a magical score by Benjamin Britten, this new production for NHO will be directed by Anna Morrissey (Noye’s Fludde 2017) and designed by Simon Kenny (Le Nozze di Figaro 2018).

A cast of young artists will shine as the NHO theatre is transformed for the opening of our 2019 festival. Our fantastic NHO Children’s Chorus will make a welcome return as the Chorus of Fairies.

Featuring Britten Sinfonia, under the baton of conductor Nicholas Chalmers.

  • “Nevill Holt Opera scores again for its place in the top league – 5 stars”
