One of opera’s most original Shakespeare adaptations comes to live in this broadcast with James Conlon conducting a youthful ensemble cast of rising stars, led by Iestyn Davies and Kathleen Kim as Oberon and Tytania, King and Queen of the fairies. The quartet of lovers is portrayed by Elizabeth DeShong (Hermia), Joseph Kaiser (Lysander), Erin Wall (Helena), and Michael Todd Simpson (Demetrius). Matthew Rose sings the donkey-headed Bottom and Riley Costello is the mischievous Puck.
