Interesting aspects of production:
Bottom is turned into a monkey rather than an ass.
Vietnamese traditional opera hat boi play “Tiet Dinh San begs Phan Le Hue” replaces the rude mechanicals’ play Pyramus and Thisbe.
Note: Act 3, Scene 1, when the rude mechanicals rehearse their play and Puck
enters to transform Bottom into an monkey. Titania wakes and falls in love
with Bottom, offering him bananas and fruit.
