A Midsummer Night's Dream


Enjoy a magical evening of opera with Shakespeare’s words enhanced by Britten’s subtly atmospheric music. Find yourself sliding between the worlds of Faerie, of star-crossed lovers and of the village thespians. Revel in the power of Britten’s alternately mystical, passionate, hilarious and joyous music, performed by Surrey Opera’s professional cast and orchestra, in the composer’s original and complete scoring.

We were honoured to have the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall in our audience at the Minack; here are a few about their visit:
