A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Belmond La Residencia.

Belmond La Residencia, the luxury hotel in Deya, offered a magical theatrical night on Thursday when the Morgan Theatre Company performed Shakespeare’s play A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The play was performed in the hotel gardens which provided an ideal stage setting, with a mountain backdrop and wonderful foliage representing the faerie wood in which the plot evolves.

The evening was a resounding success and the performance will be repeated on Thursday 27 July at 9.30pm.

Entrance is free, and reservation for seats are made by calling the hotel on 971 639 011. Belmond La Residencia offers a series of events throughout the season - from an annual garden party, to art exhibitions in its renowned Tafona Gallery, regular music concerts, and from this year, literary events.

The first literary evening was a poetry reading celebrating the inauguration of the hotel’s Poets’ Walk, and the Shakespeare performances are a sequel, to be followed in October by the Memoir Writing Week hosted by the author Allegra Huston.
