The Santa Fe Opera Guild (SFOG) Presents: A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Three Readings) With Robin Williams, PhD on Zoom.

The Check-In time is 2:50 p.m. and the meeting time is 3-5 p.m. Monday, July 12; Wednesday, July 14; and Friday, July 16.

The final opera this season is A Midsummer Night’s Dream, by composer Benjamin Britten, based on Shakespeare’s play. Robin Williams, esteemed Shakespeare educator, will facilitate a reading of the play in three, two-hour Zoom sessions.

Participants will choose and read character parts from the play with stops to clarify language and issues. Any edition of the play can be used and no one is required to read.

Williams said she believes that “reading the plays out loud and in community is a delightful and time-honored way to become familiar with and develop a personal relationship with the Shakespearean works.”
