Karabits, Simsa / Mendelssohn-Bartholdy "A Midsummer Night's Dream"

School Concert

Horizontal Tabs

By now for the sixth season, the Wiener Symphoniker has been offering two to three school concerts per year. There, in concerts lasting one hour on average, it introduces important works of the classical repertoire. This year, Marko Simsa will moderate Felix Mendelssohn’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream with exciting facts and entertaining anecdotes. Under the direction of Kirill Karabits, they will show further facets of this composition which is world-famous for its Wedding March, in particular. Mendelssohn’s successful incidental music is based on William Shakespeare’s eponymous (romantic) comedy. There, on a summer night in a forest outside Athens, several plots are woven into a dense network of dreams: Two young men, Demetrius and Lysander, and their wives, Helena and Hermia, are entangled in some complicated love relationships manipulated by Oberon, King of the Fairies, and Puck, his sprite.
