A Midsummer Night's Dream | Productions : The Kalamazoo Civic Theatre

A Midsummer Night's Dream

2005 - 2006 Production


In a rare and wonderful collaboration with the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra, we will present a very special production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Blending Shakespeare's text with the music of Mendelssohn, this romantic comedy will be presented at Miller Auditorium for two evenings in February. Mendelssohn first announced his intention of "dreaming the Midsummer Night's Dream" in 1826. The result was his miraculous overture, with its picturesque themes and shimmering orchestration. Many years later, Mendelssohn returned to his "favorite among old Will's beloved plays." One of the wonders of the score is the way it recaptures the spontaneous poetry of adolescence. You won't want to miss this incredible event.
