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 and imps named after hockey equipment. 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.
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.
Ballet Idaho aims to use the art form as a tool of enrichment for people from all walks of life. And with nearly 25,000 audience members catching a performance in 2016, and another 10,000 kids reached in the 2016–17 school year, it's fair to say they're succeeding. While their four annual main-stage productions steal much of the spotlight, it's far from the only way the company reaches out—a roster of 15 teaching artists, and their educational outreach program connects the dancers with students throughout Idaho.
