There is a ferocity about this production that is off-putting. Titania
and Oberon are not ethereally at odds, but grimly at war. Puck has
vampire fangs and looks like a hustler who'd offer to sell you club
drugs. The rustics are not funny ever. In sum, the playfulness and
magic we expect in this play are absent.
That said, it's pretty to look at, as director Elijah Moshinsky
continues his progress through the catalog of Old Masters paintings,
usually but not always in consonance with the text.
Helen Mirren is an iron-willed professional as Titania, even when the
changeling child cries in her arms during a major speech. Peter
McEnery's cold Oberon shows violent rage at the lovers' confusion, and
in punishment holds Puck's head underwater a bit too long for comedy.
Cherith Mellor is particularly good as Helena, in her only appearance
in the BBC Shakespeare series. Nigel Davenport is a pleasure to listen
to as Duke Theseus, in his only appearance, other than the 1978 "Much
Ado" with Anthony Andrews, Michael York and Penelope Keith that was
supposed to inaugurate the series but was buried. Otherwise there is
little delightful about this Dream, which all too often verges on
The slapstick dispute among the four lovers uses thickly overlapping
dialog, which speeds things up but renders it unusable in the
classroom. The rude mechanicals are gentrified here, killing
Shakespeare's pointed class distinction and most of the humor with it.
Geoffrey Palmer is ineffective as Peter Quince. Brian Glover gives his
all as Bottom, but is Liliputian compared to the awe-inspiring Paul
Rogers in the Peter Hall film.
In fact, that delightful Peter Hall film from 1968 is superior in every
major aspect except the technical ones. There Ian Richardson and Judi
Dench make magic as the Fairies' Rulers, Helen Mirren, Diana Rigg,
David Warner and Michael Jayston are the lovers, Paul Rogers is Bottom
and Ian Holm plays Puck as Oberon's faithful dog, tongue hanging out in
eagerness for mischief - all shot outdoors in a wondrous twilight wood.
Now that's one bewitching Dream!
