A Midsummer Night's Connection

Edwin Landseer - Scene from A Midsummer Night's Dream (Titania and Bottom)

 

It’s a much-beloved comic tale of mismatched lovers, low-comedy buffoons, and a host of fairy spirits.

In this hour, A Midsummer Night’s Dream in music by Purcell, Mendelssohn, Britten, Weber, Korngold, Orff and more.
