Midsummer Night's Dream

On Friday, November 26th, our school had the pleasure to host a theater performance of Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream acted out by the drama group of Baku International School. The group from Azerbaijan was on an educational trip touring Central Europe and had spent some time in Germany before they came to Vienna to do some sightseeing and present their play at our school.

Starting from the classical Shakespeare text they produced a mesmerizing show combining the fairy and love story with rock music and dance. Their aim to make the play attractive to students was met! Our 5th and 7th formers were fascinated and loved the performance.

Thanks to the Austrian Ministry of Education, our school principal and technical/musical mastermind Christian Wiesmann to make the event happen on such short notice! We would love to have the Baku group back next year for a proper evening performance and some more cultural exchange between the schools.
