A Midsummer Night's Dream

MAY 21-29

Approximately 1 hr 54 min

The Enchanted Lovers’ Comedy Takes Center Stage for our Final Spring Program

Balanchine’s full-length adaptation of one of Shakespeare’s most cherished comedies has never been long absent from the repertory since its debut in 1962. Inspired by the music of Mendelssohn, Balanchine captures the play’s infinite colors – the bumbling comedy of the Rude Mechanicals, the feisty feuding between Titania and Oberon, the romantic confusion of the young lovers chasing each other through the Athenian forest, and of course the mischief-making Puck – in a ballet of myriad pleasures.

At the May 29, 3 pm, performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream, Principal Dancer Amar Ramasar will take his final bow on a dynamic 21-year career with New York City Ballet. Join us in celebration of this hometown favorite.
