Read the following passage and choose the best answers.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Midsummer Night’s Dream
Felix Mendelssohn was a famous German composer. He was very talented. When he was only 10 years old, he could play and write music.
Mendelssohn liked the play A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare. The story is a comedy about love on a warm summer night. Many people think that magical things happen on summer nights. This play is full of magic. There are funny fairies and a talking donkey. Mendelssohn wanted to write music for the play.
When you listen to Mendelssohn’s music, you can imagine a magical forest on a midsummer night. The music begins with a light, quick violin. When you hear it, you can imagine fairies flying in the sky. Mendelssohn also used the violin to make the donkey’s sound: “Hee-haw! Hee-haw!”
Mendelssohn also wrote special music for each part of the story. For example, the two young couples in the play get married. Mendelssohn composed the “Wedding March” for that scene. Today, it is still a famous wedding song.
