A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM


For ballet lovers, the return of A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a welcome rite of spring. In his distillation of Shakespeare’s comedy – the first full-length ballet Balanchine created – the choreographer captures all the mirth and merriment of the original. The turmoil of the young lovers, the tug of war between Oberon and Titania, and the Rude Mechanicals’ bumbling all combine to joyous effect in a ballet that perfectly expresses the season of regeneration.

(Mendelssohn/Balanchine)
