The Story


In the forest, Oberon (the King of the Fairies) argues with Titania (the Fairy Queen) that he should have her orphan child as his page. Titania objects, asserting she is queen. They bicker that Oberon loves Hippolita and Titania loves Teseus. To obtain the boy, Oberon orders the fairy Puc to obtain a flower from Cupid that causes on to love the first person a person sees. Oberon plans to give it to Titania, so she'll love a vile thing and give him the child. Demetrius and Helena appear, Helena pursuing him, and he fleeing her. Puc arrives with the flower, and Oberon orders Puc to anoint Demetrius with it so he'll love Helena rather than Hermia. Oberon then anoints Titania with the flower. In the forest, Lysander and Hermia lie down to rest. Puc, thinking Lisander is Demetrius, anoints him with the flower. Helena appears and awakes Lisander, who immediately falls in love with her.
