Benjamin Britten's adaptation of Shakespeare's Dream has travelled far since its 1960 premiere in Aldeburgh's fusty little Jubilee Hall. In 1991 it reached Aix-en-Provence, whence Canadian producer Robert Carsen's magical festival staging comes to ENO at the Coliseum in May - and to Radio 3 as part of its Fairest Isle season - complete with Christopher Robson and Lillian Watson as the faery king and queen, and comedian Emil Wolk, long a stalwart of the proto-alternative People Show, in the non- singing role of Puck.
