A Midsummer Night’s Dream
“In the Still of the Night”
The magical worlds of sleep, night and extravagant dream that enrich both Shakespeare’s play and Britten’s opera A Midsummer Night’s Dream are brought together in an evocative collage. Selections ranging from Handel to Cole Porter and Ovid to Ogden Nash illustrated by images from the MFA’s collection are performed by singers from the BLO production and Boston-based actors.
