Star-crossed lovers, fairies, and a weaver transformed into a half-donkey come together in an enchanted forest.

On February 14 at the Blaisdell Concert Hall, Hawaii Opera Theatre opens a new production of Benjamin Britten's setting of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. This is the first Britten opera HOT has brought to Honolulu audiences.

HPR continues its series “A Curious Person’s Guide” with a behind-the-scenes look into the making of this Dream. HOT Executive Director Simon Crookall acts as our "merry wanderer of the night," leading listeners "up and down, up and down" and into the making of this enchanting production, directed by HOT Artistic Director Henry Akina.

"A Curious Person's Guide to A Midsummer Night's Dream" airs this Wednesday, February 10, at 3:00 p.m. on HPR-1.
