MELBOURNE CITY BALLET’S A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM PRESENTED BY THE EVENTS CENTRE
Melbourne City Ballet brings their newest season, a magical, neoclassical ballet interpretation of the William Shakespeare classic “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”.
This Shakespearean adaption 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.
“A Midsummer Nights Dream” is suitable to both new and more sophisticated classical ballet palates, with an excerpt being selected in 2015 to be performed at the Australian Dance Awards in Adelaide.
With a full cast of talented artists, dazzling costumes and beautiful sets, Artistic Director Michael Pappalardo will take 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”.
DURATION: 90 minutes with an interval (Subject to change without notice)
