“A Meditation on Harlem Midsummer”

Mendelssohn/arr. TarkmannA Midsummer Night’s Dream, incidental music, Op. 21 and 61

Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and Classical Theatre of Harlem offer a collaborative portrait of the cultural diversity and vitality of New York City through a musical and theatrical performance of Shakespeare’s classic tale A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The performance includes Mendelssohn’s timeless incidental music, arranged for chamber orchestra, in its rightful place within Shakespeare’s timeless play (with some modern adaptations), combining all into a singular theatrical event. Drawing on the universal theme of love’s many caprices, this meditation offers a specific portrait of Harlem’s rich culture and celebrate this space through a blend of music, theatre, and dance.

SHIFT is co-presented by Washington Performing Arts and the Kennedy Center in cooperation with the League of American Orchestras.
