WARSAW. SUMMER IN THEATERS – Fashion for Mazovia

Vacations are the perfect time to catch up on theatrical lag and for unique experiences during extraordinary summer outdoor performances. The stages of the capital invite you to perform in the urban space and at their offices. The repertoire includes well-known and popular titles, premiere screenings and special events, such as the staging of Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream in the Royal Gardens in Wilanów.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream in the Gardens of the Museum of King John III’s Palace in Wilanów

“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is a love story of three couples, in which realism merges with the world of magic. The enchanting scenery of the Wilanów Palace Gardens and the public park layout on three sides blur the boundaries not only in art, but between the audience and the actors. Dreams mingle with reality, and with the setting sun, the picnic atmosphere gives way to a moving tale of love, elation, disappointment and even madness. A humorous breakthrough here are the figures of mechanics, who clumsily prepare the show for the royal wedding. Fairies and elves play in the audience, mixing the lovers’ plans, and the elements of the choreography allow the characters to discover magical dance patterns that they do not understand.
