Oberon

Oberon
or The Elf King’s Oath

June 10 – 18, 2017
at GALA Hispanic Theatre

Carl Maria von Weber’s stunning music for Oberon brings you a true midsummer night’s dream, beginning with the famous overture. Shakespeare’s gods are a-quarreling, and true love must be conjured by a host of fairies, kings, elves, medieval knights and the mischievous Puck. Writer and director Nick Olcott unveils a new English adaptation of this classic opera, conducted by music director Stanley Thurston.
