WINTER FESTIVAL: A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM
Mendelssohn’s music for A Midsummer Night’s Dream is as magical as Shakespeare’s comedy. Experience them together in this special theatrical presentation: actors from celebrated artistic partner The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey perform alongside Mendelssohn’s score, highlighted by the immortal “Wedding March.”
