KVNO Presents ‘Shakespeare on the Radio’
August 18th, 2020
Omaha, NEâ€”This weekend, KVNO will present â€œShakespeare on the Radio, A Midsummer Nightâ€™s Dream and Mendelssohnâ€™s Incidental Music.â€ This special broadcast is an original production, a collaboration between UNO, Nebraska Shakespeare, and KVNO. It will hopefully serve as a remedy for this yearâ€™s unfortunate lack of live performances.
One of Shakespeareâ€™s most famous comedies, A Midsummer Nightâ€™s Dream is a fantastical tale with fairies and magic, and it draws on traditions much older than the playwright.
Even for listeners who havenâ€™t read or seen the play, this abridged version might present some familiar moments, especially in Mendelssohnâ€™s classic score.
â€œShakespeare on the Radio, A Midsummer Nightâ€™s Dream and Mendelssohnâ€™s Incidental Musicâ€ will air on KVNO Saturday, August 22 at 3:30pm and Wednesday August 26 at 2:30pm. For more information, find KVNO on Facebook.
