The scenes, most of which are from Act I of the ballet, include Titania's pas de deux with her cavalier; Oberon's dance with the ensemble of butterflies and fairies; a mime scene in which Oberon directs Puck to find the magic flower, and Puck's ensuing journey; the four lovers wandering through a mist-shrouded forest as Hippolyta and her hounds pursue their hunt; Titania's awakening, and the removal of Bottom's enchantment. Scenes from Act II include the final pose of Theseus, Hippolyta, and the four lovers, and the reconciliation of Titania and Oberon, with the butterflies and fairies in attendance.

BTW: saw PNB's Midsummer in person: a wonderful production with standout performances by Patricia Barker and Christopher Stowell (Puck). Sorry to see it pounded by those who viewed the DVD.
