By Francisco Salazar

Opera Philadelphia is set to continue its season in the winter with the U.S. Premiere of Robert Carsen’s production of Britten;’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Following the success of the O18, the second edition Music Director Corrado Rovaris will conduct four performances of the work starring Tim Mead, Anna Christy, and Game of Thrones alum Miltos Yerolemou.

Carsen’s production, which has been hailed by critics for visuals, will also star Matthew Rose, Brenton Ryan, Georgia Jarman, Siena Licht Miller, and Johnathan McCullough. 

The revival will be directed by Emmanuelle Bastet, Carsen’s collaborator for the past two decades and will feature Michael Levine’s original set and costume design with lighting by Peter Van Praet and the choreography of Matthew Bourne.

The production is set to open on Feb. 8 and runs through the 17th. Opera Philadelphia will also present Puccini’s “La Bohème” and Mozart’s “Don Giovanni” later this year.
