Lovers, fairies and mischief conspire under moonlight in Shakespeare’s classic tale.
The enchantment will spread far and wide when Melbourne City Ballet will tour A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Audiences across Australia will be treated to this Shakespearean classic, but as the saying goes the course of true love never did run smooth!
Set to the inspiring music of Mendelssohn, the chaotic story of four young lovers, a vengeful king and meddling fairies will prove falling in love can make fools of everyone.
Full of flittering fairies, mischievous magic, and misadventures this charming ballet will be a delightful journey from the royal court into a magical realm.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream “is one of my personal favourite ballet’s from the company’s repertoire. A beautiful, colourful and fast paced ballet, so much love and planning has made this work simply divine”
