January 21, 2011 | Opera Memphis
A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Composer:Michael Ching
Librettist:William Shakespeare
The production will be the first attempt by a North American opera company at a full-length mainstage opera performed entirely a cappella. Opera Memphis joins forces with Playhouse on the Square to mount a production exciting to both the opera lover and avid theatergoer alike. The production will feature opera singers, singing actors and a "vocal orchestra" made up of Memphis’ favorite a cappella group DeltaCappella and their newly formed sister group RIVA. Performed in English using the original Shakespearean text.
