Music in Shakespeare's world

   The Boston Symphony Orchestra started the ambitious mini-festival focused on music inspired by William Shakespeare last Thursday night- through February 13th. It's dedicated to celebrating Shakespeare on the 400th anniversary of his death, and this program's focus is the great comedy "A Midsummer Night's Dream." 
   The first concert of this series begins with Weber’s classic Overture to “Oberon,” continues with Hans Werner Henze’s Eighth Symphony, and the last one is Mendelssohn’s much-loved Overture and Incidental Music for the same play, in a new stage adaptation directed by Bill Barclay. You will enjoy music, singers with the costumes and the staging on the stage. Only one night left.
The last chance to watch it is on Tuesday 2nd.

 Touch the mystery.
