Publisher's Summary

Folger Shakespeare Library, The World’s Leading Center for Shakespeare Studies
The Folger Shakespeare Library, home to the world's largest Shakespeare collection, brings A Midsummer Night's Dream to life with this new full-length, full-cast dramatic recording of its definitive Folger Edition.
In A Midsummer Night's Dream, Shakespeare stages the workings of love in unexpected ways. In the woods outside Athens, two young men and two young women sort themselves into couples - but not before they form first one love triangle, and then another. The king and queen of fairyland, Oberon and Titania, battle over custody of an orphan boy. Oberon uses magic to make Titania fall in love with a weaver named Bottom, in an effort to distract Titania from the custody battle. While all of this is going on, Bottom and his companions ineptly stage the tragedy of "Pyramus and Thisbe".
This new full-cast recording - based on the most respected edition of Shakespeare’s classic - expertly produced by the Folger Theatre, is perfect for students, teachers, and the everyday listener.

Captivating performance!

This performance kept me enjoyably engaged from start to finish and brought the play to life. The music and acting helped me to emotionally connect with the story and characters even when I struggled to catch all the plot details due to the archaic language.

The cast is wonderful!

I felt like I was at the theater watching the play, yet I was only driving my car;) Loved it!
