Lullaby: Two Ways (From “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”)
Performed by the forest fairies, with lead vocals by Rachel Tolzman, the first version, “Lullaby”, is a dream song, a half remembered melody from a childhood long since outgrown, sung to give comfort to Oberon when he wants to be soothed. The melody, hinting at faeries in flight, works against a sinewy harmony that suggests Oberon’s unrest. It envelops the listener and protects them from harm.
The second imagining, “Lullaby (with Added Bubbles)” is a soulful pop ballad, performed by Jamie Rose-Monks; Oberon’s unrest is now gone, and all that remains is the bliss of new beginnings, new romances, and pure indulgence.
‘Lullaby: Two Ways’ is available across all major digital platforms including iTunes, Amazon and Spotify. Find out more about Bridge Theatre and the production at bridgetheatre.co.uk.
