by William Shakespeare
Four young lovers flee from the strict laws of Athens and get lost in a forest full of ghosts and elves, get caught in the maelstrom of their desires and passions, dream of heaven and fall into the abyss.
On Midsummer's Eve, the spirits of nature whirl everything upside down and play their tricks on people, breaking all the rules and reshuffling the deck.
A sensual, turbulent round dance that contrasts the uniform civil society with the exotic jungle. As always, accompanied by magical live music, sung and played with devotion by the ensemble.
