By BLO Staff

With our new production of Benjamin Britten's A Midsummer Night's Dream opening at the end of the month, we want to see your visions of midsummer dreams.

Students of RAW Art Works
in Lynn, MA,
inspired by hearing Britten's music in class, created their own drawings of one
scene of fantastical forests which were in turn reproduced by the painters at
the American Repertory Theater Scene Shop as elements for the BLO production.
Get in on the fun and send us a visual, a short video, a
poem, a song - any creative expression of YOUR 'midsummer night's dream.'
Submissions will be featured at In the Wings and all
submissions will be entered into a raffle to win a pair of tickets to opening
night of A
Midsummer Nights Dream
, Friday April 29th along
with a gift certificate valued at $200 to O Ya for dinner before the show! 
The winner will be selected on
Monday, April 25th.
Please send submissions to For video submissions
please send a link to your video posted on YouTube.
How about a sample from Galileo?
here are some sketches I made of the Moon...not quite actually Midsummer time
but it was close...around the 3rd of May. We'd been outdoors skinny dipping in the Arno and the moon was so bright and luminous that I
thought I ought to record it…Happily I'd brought along some ink and paper and
using my girl friend Lucezia's back as a smooth if slightly damp surface I
drew away. Enjoy everybody.
1584  Florence
