Midsummer Night's Dream

About Midsummer Night's Dream

The three top performing arts companies in the east of the Netherlands are joining forces once again. Oostpool, Introdans and Phion, orchestra of Gelderland & Overijssel together with Musis & Stadstheater Arnhem, present a grand and hallucinatory theatre spectacle: Midsummer Night’s Dream. The famous Shakespeare classic in a completely new production.

The romantic comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream tells the story of four young people who, each in their own way, are searching for love. Inquisitive and headstrong, they enter the wood where they surrender themselves to intoxicating forces. This leads to typically Shakespearian complications, also involving mythical creatures of the wood and a group of amateur actors rehearsing their new play in the wood.

Midsummer Night’s Dream (in Dutch ‘Midzomernachtsdroom’) features actors of Toneelgroep Oostpool, dancers of Introdans and musicians of Phion, orchestra of Gelderland & Overijssel together on stage. It’s an explosive mix of acting, dance and music with more than 40 performers. You can look forward to a captivating show full of colour, exuberance and a sense of ‘now’.

Playtime: 26 march - 28 may

Locations: Doetinchem, Zwolle, Apeldoorn, Utrecht, Tiel, Nijmegen, Hengelo, Arnhem
