From the Residenzhof Salzburg: "A Midsummer Night's Dream" by William Shakespeare - Music by Felix Mendelssohn. Translation and Adaptation by Henry Mason. Conductor: Ivor Bolton - Stage director: Henry Mason. Shakespeare masterfully ties together complex layers of action: three lovers who try to find their true love, escapes, mix-ups and love potions, complexity and ambiguity as inherent as only in dreams. Mendelssohn's enchanting music which he wrote for a production of this play is the perfect completion. "This music is like flying on a magic carpet" (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung). "What a feast of fantasy! What a feast for the senses!" (Stuttgarter Zeitung).
