A Midsummer Nights Dream at the Orlando Shakes
As king of the fairies, Patrick Sullivan proved more gentle than fierce.
The production was the first major collaboration between the Philharmonic and the Shakespeare Theater, and it served as the final classical concert of the Phil's 20th-anniversary season. So maybe there was a heightened energy Saturday night from the special occasions. Or maybe it was the presence of all those fairies. But the end result was magical.
