About Julie Taymor's A Midsummer Night's Dream

Year Released:

Omniverse Vision is delighted to present Julie Taymor’s much heralded and sold-out production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, filmed at the Theatre For A New Audience in Brooklyn, New York, in 2014. Julie Taymor is the creative force behind such productions as Titus Andronicus, The Magic Flute (Metropolitan Opera), and the highest grossing Broadway musical of all time, The Lion King.   Of all Shakespeare’s plays, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is the most phantasmagorical, featuring fairies, spells, and hallucinatory lovers. Julie Taymor turns out a production that’s visually breathtaking, funny, sexy, and darkly poetic. With cinematography by Rodrigo Prieto (Argo, Frida) and music by Academy Award-winning composer Elliot Goldenthal, this is an immersive, inventive cinematic experience that was filmed during the show’s highly acclaimed inaugural run. The feats of visual imagination are ingenious and plentiful, but beating at the center of the film is an emotionally moving take on the deeper human aspects of this beloved tale.
