Everything is magical in this A Midsummer Night’s Dream as IN Series celebrates summer in midst of winter. This live holiday event blends Shakespeare’s whimsical words with the unforgettable music of Henry Purcell in the style of a classic radio play with live sound effects, featuring local radio personalities as masters of ceremonies. Acclaimed soprano Claron McFadden joins a full baroque orchestra as the clarion voice of a trumpet, adorning this celebration of “the winter of our discontent made glorious summer.”
