Melbourne City Ballet’s adaption of this Shakespearean classic 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 (Oberon & Titania respectively). With stunning costumes and scenery that transport audiences into this fantastical world, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a comical family friendly romantic ballet for the most classical palates. Choreographed by Artistic Director Michael Pappalardo, the production is vibrant affair suitable for audiences of all ages.
Melbourne City Ballet’s 2017 tour of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is proudly supported by Creative Victoria and Arts Queensland.
