A Midsummer Night's Dream @ His Majesty's Theatre


Created for the Royal Shakespeare Company, this work by Russian director Dmitry Krymov is genre-busting alchemy, and in a reimagining of Shakespeare’s great play he imbues such tenderness, grandeur and spectacle, that the theatre seems swollen with joy. At the heart of this exuberant production lies a love story, with endless magic whirling all around it … fruit, flowers and brilliant five-metre puppets … a massive ensemble, an opera singer, two acrobats and Venya, the performing dog. Dazzlingly executed and abundant in emotion, this stunning production assures us of Krymov’s position as one of the most original directorial voices of our generation. This is A Midsummer Night’s Dream with a twist. Krymov creates a wonderfully rich and expansive Shakespearean fantasy, focusing with absolute clarity on the simplicity and beauty of the tale of Pyramus and Thisbe. Crafted with humour, inventiveness and flair, A Midsummer Night’s Dream (As You Like It) is a euphoric interpretation of history’s first great love story. This is spell-binding theatre on an epic scale.
