Here is a wonderful combination of the Old Vic Company performing Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream accompanied by music performed by the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, conducted by Malcolm Sargent.
Romeo and Juliet is one of Shakespeare’s earliest tragedies and probably the best known of all his works. Few do not know the poignant love story between these two young lovers from rivaling and feuding families tracing the first fresh bloom of their love to their ultimate demise.
A Midsummer Night's Dream is a delightful tale of true love having to struggle against duty and pride. It has three separate interlocking stories set in Athens, woodland and the realm of the fairies - all under a moonlit night.
