(English language with Japanese subtitles. Music arrangement by Prisca Molotsi)
June 3rd–5th | Nagoya City Performing Arts Center, Shin Sakae
This summer, prepare for an explosion of magic, music and mayhem as Nameless Theatre brings Shakespeare’s most popular comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream to Nagoya.
Four young lovers elope by moonlight into a forest. Unbeknownst to them, the magical beings that live there are in the midst of a war, one that threatens to cause havoc in the human world also. Trapped in the middle of the chaos, the lovers are in for an evening they will never forget…
Taking the traditional ruffles and tights image of Shakespeare and adding a contemporary spin, Nameless Theatre’s production of Midsummer has restaged the show as a Harry Potter-inspired musical. The songs in the show have been arranged by Prisca Molotsi (also appearing as Fairy Queen Titania), and will be set to dance sequences choreographed by Miho Kobayashi.
Alongside our army of dancing fairies, we're proud to have with us on stage some of the best international acting talent in Aichi. Fairy King Oberon will be played by Kazumasa Nishikawa, headmaster of the prestigious national dance school Nishikawa-Ryu. Alongside familiar faces in the community theatre scene such as Jessica A. Robison (Hermia), Aya Kawakami (Puck), and Elijah Ben (Theseus) are newcomers Susie Misuzu (Hippolyta) and Veenesh Dubois (Bottom). You'll also recognize community leaders such as Harry Hill (Tom Snout), Lowell Sheppard (Egeus), Matt Fraser (Philostrate) and Stephen Kovacsics (Robin Starveling).
Performances will be held Friday, June 3rd, at 6:30pm; Saturday, June 4th, at 1pm and 6:30pm; and Sunday, June 5th, at 1pm and 5pm. General admission tickets are ¥4,000 in advance (¥5,000 at the door). Group ticket discounts are available for groups of 10 or more.
