Event Details

A live, online performance set in a virtual midsummer forest

Theatre, music and groundbreaking technology combine in an extraordinary exploration into the future of live performance. Follow a sprite on a moonlit journey through the night until dawn. A dreamlike journey into a forest: a story of transformation. Inspired by Shakespeare’s iconic play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Puck invites you on a magical journey between dusk and dawn. With a cloud of fireflies lighting the way, you explore the forest and encounter four sprites, Moth, Peaseblossom, Cobweb and Mustardseed. But storm clouds gather on the horizon, threatening destruction.

Philharmonia Orchestra, Royal Shakespeare Company, Manchester International Festival and several specialist immersive technology organisations and pioneers combine to present ‘Dream’, a spectacular virtual concert that takes place in a magical, midsummer forest. 

You can watch Dream on a smartphone, tablet or computer. There are two ways to watch: you can interact with the live performance through your device, or simply sit back and watch the live stream. 

Before you book, we need to run a device check to make sure both options will work for you. No personal information is collected, and no information is stored. Learn more

Please make sure you are using the device you will use to experience Dream. Performance runs for 50 minutes.
