Midsummer Night’s Dream is a delightful full-length ballet by George Ballanchine with music composed by Felix Mendelssohn. Based on William Shakespeare’s magical comedy about the romantic adventures and misadventures, quarreling and reuniting, between a set of human lovers and the Queen and King of the Fairies, this enchanting production brings to life Shakespeare's tale of merry romance, mischievous make-believe and mistaken identity. With luscious sets and costumes and a cast of over 100 dancers and students from the School of American Ballet, this classic story of a fairy kingdom and the humans that enter it, is simply not to be missed.
