I hope that everybody associated with this production is proud of it, and of their part in it. I honestly think that given the constraints of budget and time (not to mention the large scope of the play itself), it is a triumph.
Producer Jonathan Miller and director Elijah Moshinsk deserve great credit for a piece which looks more sumptious than Miller's "King Lear" (as it needs to) but which is every bit as intelligently directed. In terms of lighting, sets and costumes, much has been taken from seventeenth century painting and masques. The night-time forest is a delight, as are the very funny scenes between the enchanted and misled lovers. The production boasts a uniformly strong cast which includes Helen Mirren (Titania), Robert Lindsay (Lysander), Nicky Henson (Demetrius), Phil Daniels (Puck), Peter McKenery (Oberon), Nigel Davenport (Theseus), Brian Glover (Bottom), Geoffrey Palmer, Don Estelle, Pippa Guard, etc.
In short, this is a first-rate production of what has to be one of Shakespeare's greatest and most magisterial of plays.
Beyond the "Subtitles" and "Scene Selection" options, the DVD has no extras.
