    A Midsummer Night's Dream

    May 28 - May 29, 2011


    A Midsummer Night's Dream

    The influential German theater director Max Reinhardt brings together ballet, classical music, literature, and Expressionist art for this generous Hollywood-by-way-of-Berlin Shakespeare adaptation, a fusing of his ornate theatrical aesthetics with the zippy professionalism of Warner Bros., who hired him after his acclaimed 1934 Hollywood Bowl staging of the play. The musical prelude—a magical symphony of playful fairies and lovers in love with love—sets the tone for one of the studio system’s most sumptuous films, and also introduces the work’s other major (and unseen) character: Mendelssohn’s score.
