Mendelssohn's A Midsummer Night's Dream
Katonah, New York
Saturday, 23 June 2012 - 8:30 PM
Conductor: Roberto Abbado
Mendelssohn’s masterful incidental music to A Midsummer Night’s Dream was begun as a teenager (the Overture) and completed toward the end of Mendelssohn’s life. He evokes the fantastical, supernatural whimsy found in Shakespeare’s characters. Readings of excerpts of Shakespeare’s play will contextualize this symphonic masterpiece, from the iconic Wedding March to the unforgettable Scherzo. Conductor Roberto Abbado leads the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, and violin virtuoso Gil Shaham makes a special appearance in Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto.
Ticket prices: $15, $21, $36, $51, $66, $85.
