Grand Theater de Geneve will present “Le songe dune nuit dete,” a three-act comic opera inspired by Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” at Shanghai Grand Theater on April 22.

The opera was composed by Ambroise Thomas to a French libretto by Joseph-Bernard Rosier and Adolphe de Leuven. Although it shares the French title for Shakespeare’s play, the Bard’s comic masterpiece is only a jumping off point for this operatic work. Shakespeare himself is a character in the show, as are Elizabeth I and Falstaff.
