A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy’s incidental music to the famous Shakespeare comedy about the trials and tribulations of a midsummer’s night has lost none of its wit, originality and freshness in the 180 years since it was first performed in Berlin – when the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra and Pablos Heras-Casado take on the work, magic will not only be cast in the forest! After a series of guest performances in May, Midsummer Night’s Dream will be heard in Berlin at the end of June – as a prelude to the Nordic Ligths Festival!
