Melbourne City Ballet presents a magical, neoclassical ballet interpretation of the William Shakespeare classic A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
This Shakespearean adaptation explores three different stories within the border of Athens and Fairyland.
Whilst the Amazonian Queen and Athenian King prepare for their wedding, two Athenian couples are caught in an arranged marriage dilemma which is only made worse by the feud of the King and Queen of the Fairies.
With a full cast of talented artists, dazzling costumes and beautiful sets, Artistic Director Michael Pappalardo takes audiences on a journey to the borders of Shakespeare’s Athens/Fairyland to experience the magic, mischief and love that is A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Score: Mendelssohn’s Opus 1 and 2
