Midsummer Night’s Dream

Thursday, 6th February saw more than 30 Year 8 and 9 students, along with all the BISB Secondary English teachers, descend upon Budapest’s magnificent Urania theatre, for a National Theatre Live production of Shakespeare’s most romantic of comedies, A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Nicholas Hytner’s immersive production, full of aerial acrobatics, music and dance, was stimulating, vibrant and uplifting, and had students buzzing with chat and excitement during the interval and at the end.  Directorial choices such as the allusions to Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale in the Athens scenes, and Oberon and Titania swapping scripts in the Athenian forest scenes, will be sure to provoke some discussion when Year 8 students come to study the play next term.

Many thanks to Ms Scaramella for organising the trip, and for the English Teachers who accompanied the students.
