A midwinter' s performance

It' s been terribly cold lately but that didn' t stop up from going to the theatre for a... summer play. This time we watched Shakespeare' s Midsummer Night' s Dream, which is a funny story about love, couples and pranks.

The characters are:
Oberon -  king of the fairies
Titania -  queen of the fairies
Puck - the mischievous sprite (ξωτικό) who serves Oberon
Lysander -  A young man of Athens, in love with Hermia
Demetrius -  A young man of Athens, in love first with Hermia, then with Helena
Hermia - a young woman of Athens, the daughter of Egeus. Hermia is in love with Lysander and Helena' s friend
Helena -  A young woman of Athens, in love with Demetrius
Egeus -  Hermia’s father 
Theseus -  duke of Athens, engaged to Hippolyta
Hippolyta -  queen of the Amazons, engaged to Theseus
Quince -  a carpenter (ξυλουργός)
Snug - a joiner (ξυλουργός)
Bottom - a weaver (υφαντουργός)
Fluten -  a bellows-mender (επισκευαστής φυσερών)
Snout -  a tinker (γανωματής)
Starveling -  a tailor (ράφτης)

Since it' s Valentine' s Day tomorrow, the day of Love not only for couples but for anyone who feels this precious feeling in their heart, here' s a Valentine' s Day treat for you:
