DeShong makes her Aix-en-Provence debut in Britten's A Midsummer Night's Dream 

July 4 - 20, 2015

Harnessing the dreamy and sinuous developments of one of Shakespeare’s most cherished plays, Benjamin Britten has written a spellbinding opera where each world is differentiated by unique musical material. Robert Carsen directed an enchanting production of this 20th century operatic masterpiece, which was a phenomenal success at the 1991 Festival... It now returns to its birthplace, the courtyard of the Archeveché, where the summer nights are Provençal and dreams consumed al fresco.

"As a professional opera singer, I spend the majority of each year away from home. With luggage, camera, and scores in hand, I take off to different parts of the world to make music. With this blog, I hope to create a daily reminder that with travel you always take away more than you arrived with, but the most important of these things can't be put in a suitcase." -Elizabeth
