  • Colin Jacobsen/Siamak Aghaei  Ascending Bird
  • Felix Mendelssohn  A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Semi-Staged)

This concert opens with the intoxicating, whirling Ascending Bird, co-written by American composer Colin Jacobsen and Persian composer Siamak Aghaei. It is based on an ancient Persian parable of spiritual transcendence.

The mischief, mythical fairies and innocent lovers that Shakespeare brought to life in his A Midsummer Night’s Dream are magically portrayed through Mendelssohn’s “incidental” music. You’ll recognize the “Overture,” “Nocturne” and of course, the “Wedding March.” We’re offering a semi-staged version, complete with props, lighting, costumes and actors.
