A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM


May 20

Program and Description


VAUGHAN WILLIAMS: Serenade to Music
VAUGHAN WILLIAMS: Three Shakespeare Songs
MENDELSSOHN: A Midsummer Night’s Dream

We launch the Dream Project with Mendelssohn’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream (containing the famous Wedding March)—in a rare moment to hear the gorgeous incidental music performed in its entirety. In this re-imagining of the May Festival experience, actors, spoken word, and visual enhancements complement and enhance the drama of Shakespeare’s play as it blooms through and between the music.

This forward-looking season brings together world-acclaimed guest artists and the Festival’s first-ever Creative Partner, Gerard McBurney, to curate the immersive Dream Project. The result is a joyful and imaginative celebration of shared music-making that builds on Cincinnati’s amazing singing tradition.
