A Midsummer Night's Dream

With Shakespeare kicking off all manner of festivals this year, there are a number of takes of his work doing the rounds – the traditionally inclined, and then those destined to offer something new, a contemporary take on a beloved tale. This, part of the Open Air Theatre’s 2012 rep season, marking a brave move by artistic director Timothy Sheader, is one of the most intriguing. While the play itself is one of the playwright’s most enduring that has enjoyed countless adaptations, here it gets a new, Gypsy-themed spin that eschews any traditional take on the more-than-400 year-old tale.

£20+ | Until Sept 5

The Comedy of Errors

Shakespeare’s tale of mistaken identity (above) as two twin brothers are separated at birth and then thrown together later in their lives, gets a thoroughly modern, feisty and eye-catching update in Palestinian director Amir Nizar Zuabi’s adaptation. The Bard with balls, if you will. 

Until July 6

Swan Lake

Tchaikovsky’s ballet premiered at Moscow’s Bolshoi Theatre in 1877 and has become a stage institution held in peerlessly high regard (as well as the launchpad for the 2011 Oscar-winning movie Black Swan, which is how many will have come to it). This forthcoming production has been widely celebrated, so if you’re going to start somewhere, start with the absolute best.
