A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Directed by Andrew Larimer
May 6 - 27 | Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA
For the first time in years, outdoor Shakespeare returned to New Orleans with a magical production A Midsummer Night’s Dream presented at the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) under the stars in the museum’s Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden. 

In A Midsummer Night’s Dream four love-sick youths wander into an enchanted forest where they encounter fairies, gods and goddesses determined to play tricks on their raging hormones. The Besthoff Sculpture Garden, with its hanging Spanish moss, looming oaks, and striking sculptures provided a perfect real-life setting for this mystical romp.
