A Midsummer Night’s Dream
A Midsummer Night’s Dream interprets Shakespeare’s tale of quarreling lovers and mischievous fairies, sending audiences on a romp rife with comic misunderstandings. Puck, the servant to the king of the fairies, sets off a chain reaction when his love potion causes the fairy queen to fall in love with a weaver-turned-donkey. Then, human lovers fall into the mix, and a night of confusion unfolds in a magical forest.
This premiere performance is choreographed by Artistic Director Chung-Lin Tseng. Felix Mendelssohn’s score ranges from the grand organ swells and trumpet fanfares of the Wedding March to a rustic peasant dance built around a string refrain that imitates the sound of a braying donkey, working with the vibrant motions to keep even littler family members entertained.
