About this show

Boston Ballet presents George Balanchine's A Midsummer Night's Dream, a lucid and inventive telling of Shakespeare's play. A Midsummer Night's Dream was Balanchine's first original, full-length ballet. Called by critic Clive Barnes, "a fantasy spectacle of love," this work is a masterful combination of storytelling and choreography danced to the exquisite sounds of Mendelssohn. The ballet tells a story of love, illusion and adventures of two pairs of mortal lovers and the king and queen of the fairies.
