A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM Balanchine/Mendelssohn (New Company Production)
MCB’s landmark 30th Anniversary Season culminates with an unprecedented reimagining of George Balanchine’s magical full-evening ballet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Balanchine’s classic choreography is the vehicle for Shakespeare’s timeless tale of love, magic and illusion, with ravishing music by Felix Mendelssohn – including the famous Wedding March. This reimagining includes all-new sets and costumes by artist Michele Oka Doner, and dramatic direction by playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney.
With a fairytale cast that includes 24 children and six vocalists, magical new sets and costumes, and the breathtaking Miami City Ballet dancers accompanied by the Opus One Orchestra, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a dazzling spectacle for families and audiences of all ages.
