Musikgeschichten «Ein Sommernachts­traum»

A play based on scenes from William Shakespeare's «A Midsummer Night's Dream» (1596)
with music from «The Fairy Queen» (1692) by Henry Purcell (1659-1695)

For children ages 7 and older, with adult accompaniment

A zany band of craftsmen secretly wants to rehearse a play in the forest, but the cheeky forest spirit Puck messes up their rehearsals and creates a lot of confusion with his magical potion. With four singers and an ensemble of musicians on baroque instruments.

Stories become scenes set to music on the Studiobühne. Our young visitors learn on-the-spot how to play instruments, sing, dance, as they help shape the action.

Duration: 75 min

The Studiobühne in the third underground floor of the Opera House can only be reached via 52 stair steps and is therefore not accessible for people in wheelchairs.
