Can you guess this piece? Here's a hint: a wedding with fairies, but not a fairy tale wedding

Note: the audio for this show will be available on July 6, 2011

Our composer was thirty three years old when he was asked to compose incidental music for a production of Shakespeare’s immortal comedy. Reusing a brilliant overture he had written when he was just seventeen, the composer added twelve more sections that were the perfect transport to the fairy world of Shakespeare.
