To each word a warbling note… fairies, lovers and a bloke called Bottom with a donkey’s head. A Midsummer Night’s Dream is Shakespeare at his very best: and Felix Mendelssohn loved it so much that he transformed it into pure musical magic. Enjoy both narration and music (including that Wedding March) tonight, plus a lively overture by Felix’s sister Fanny and our incredible RSNO Youth Chorus in a 21st-century celebration of the names that we give to birds, beasts and plants.
