Then she flees with Lisandro in the Woods, followed by Helena and Demetrius, but are lost in the dark and in their dalliances.
Meanwhile, Oberon, King of the elves and his wife Titania, Queen of the fairies, come in the same forest to participate in the upcoming wedding.

At the same time, a bunch of craftsmen, to celebrate the marriage, wants to stage a popular representation on the theme of Piramo e Tisbe, meets in the forest for testing. Among them is Nick Bottom the Weaver, one of the most respected comic characters of Shakespeare.

Oberon hires Puck, also called Hobgoblin or Robin Goodfellow, for aid in his intent. In addition, having seen Demetrius and Helena sperduti nel bosco, orders Puck to squeeze the juice magic on the eyes of Demetrius to fall in love with Elena, but by mistake Puck squeezes the juice on the eyes of Lysander who wake up Elena sees and falls in love deeply, much to the chagrin of Hermia.
But Puck also has time to make a joke at the Bottom, who discovers that his head was transformed into that of a donkey. It will be the first person to Bottom where you fall in love with Titania, his awakening, because of the ' effect of Pansy.
At this point, Oberon, Titania, meets that released his purpose, agrees to disband from the ' spell. Puck then re-arrange things, including the head of the poor Bottom.
Oberon also noticing the error of ' Puck, puts the juice on the eyes of Demetrius. So now both Lisandro Demetrius run behind Elena accapigliandosi between them. Oberon orders at the end of Reseat everything between Puck lovers. Puck then descend a fairyland forest mist on the four boys are asleep. Then use the rose of thought to ensure that Lysander loves Hermia again. So now everything is in place: Oberon and Titania are reconciled, and the four young are two pairs.
These are found asleep at the edge of the forest the next day by Theseus, who is quick to prepare the wedding. The news of the upcoming three marriages in turmoil, including workers Athenians who were trying the comedy in the Woods, but are without the main character of their comedy: Piramo, which was to be played by Bottom they had abandoned in the woods with his head d ' ass: morale is down. Fortunately, the protagonist enters the scene at this very moment of despair back from the Woods, and urges the colleagues to prepare for the show.
The Palace, Theseus, despite warnings of Toastmaster, choose their own show (Piramo e Tisbe) argues that something offered with such goodwill cannot be refused.
At this point the show into the show: the artisans bring a clumsy version of tragedy, making the comic thing (" feeling the face of my Mind ... " " I see the sound of your voice ..."), which is also a character in the lion's role, one in the Moonlight and another in a wall (!).
