John Eliot Gardiner offers a thrilling reading of Shakespearean proportions with this energetic production of Mendelssohn’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Spoken and sung interludes trade off with fluttering, spritely instrumental movements, creating a truly compelling, almost operatic tableau. The Monteverdi Choir sings with dazzling dexterity.
