Once upon a time,a long time ago, in a city far , far away , called Athens (in Greece) , there lived a great duke.
Duke Theseus was busy preparing for his wedding to Hippolyta ( a queen, whom he had won in battle), when he was interuppted by an angry father and disobedient daughter who demanded his judgement .
You see , she wont listen to me ! All she says is that she wants Lysander for her to marry , but I would love her to marry Demetrius . i just dont understand what she likes so much about Lysander !
Beware Lysander ! Demetrius , my daughter shall marry .
Please Dad ! I want to marry Lysander
Hermia,Egeus's daughter had refused to marry Demetrius, the suitor her father had chosen for her, and instead declared her love for Lysander .In Athens, the law declared that daughters must obey their fathers.
You have three choices , become a nun , marry Demetrius or die . You will not be allowed to marry Lysander .
If I tell this to Demetrius ... He might trust and love me , and we will be close together forever !
Don't worry my love , Hermia , we shall go to my aunt's house and live together . Helena will keep the secret with us .
Here's my aunt's house Hermia !
Oh My ! It's my true love and that foolish boy , Lysander ! I can't believe Hermia were so foolish to tell me about this !
