Spring 2022 Member Dress Rehearsal

May 20, 1:00 pm

A Midsummer Night's Dream

Friday, May 20 at 1 PM

David H. Koch Theater 

You and one guest are invited to join us for the working dress rehearsal A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Balanchine had been familiar with Shakespeare’s well-loved comedy, A Midsummer Night's Dream, from an early age. It is called a "Dream" because of the unrealistic events the characters experience in the play —real, yet unreal, such as crossed lovers, meaningless quarrels, forest chases leading to more confusion, and magic spells. George Balanchine’s version, which premiered in 1962, was the first wholly original evening-length ballet he choreographed in America.
