What do you get when the four young lovers from William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” become stranded on Prospero’s island from the Bard’s “The Tempest”? A lot of fun, mayhem and magic in The Metropolitan Opera’s original creation “The Enchanted Island,” which had its world premiere Dec. 31 in New York.

The opera follows in the tradition of Baroque pastiche, combining music written by Handel, Vivaldi and others into a story devised by librettist Jeremy Sams.
