“A fantastical soundworld that envelopes you in its glittering magic.” Stage Door

We’re so excited to have secured some of the world’s greatest artists to stage this magical production directed by Neil Armfield. Australia’s own Daniel Carter(Deutsche Oper Berlin) returns to conduct the Adelaide Symphony Orchestrawith an exceptional cast led by rising star, American counter tenor Aryeh Nussbaum Cohen as Oberon, joined by Rachelle Durkin as Tytania, Teddy Tahu Rhodes as Theseus, Warwick Fyfe as Bottom and our wonderful Young Adelaide Voices children’s choir.

“Inspired singing and hilarity … a triumph” Chicago Classical Review

We’ve endured a year like no other. Seize the chance to laugh and gasp with other human beings, to feel the air vibrate with the shimmering sounds of string and wood, metal and breath.

We can’t wait to see you there!
