Experience Shakespeare in the original language with Akershus Fortress as a backdrop!

Experience Shakespeare in the original language with Akershus Fortress as a backdrop!

This is Shakespeare's most popular comedy. The story follows a quartet of lovers who are lured into the woods by fairies who trick them with a potion that forces them to fall in love with the first person they see. Unfortunately, it's the fairy queen herself who takes the potion, and when a donkey crosses her path, she falls in love with the animal. This hilarious comedy explores the madness of love and laughs at human folly. It contains some of Shakespeare's finest poetry, slapstick comedy, touching love scenes, mysticism and theatre magic.

TNT's production has been a worldwide success, with hundreds of performances on three continents and even a new production in Mandarin. This is Shakespeare that is easy to understand and enjoy, even for audiences whose first language is not English.

Specially composed music is woven into the production, as well as choreography, poetry and, not least, comedy, led by one of Shakespeare's greatest clowns: Bottom, the hopeless amateur actor.
