What You'll Get


The Deal

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

  • The Plot: A Midsummer Night’s Dream adapts Shakespeare’s tale of quarreling lovers and mischievous fairies for the ballet, 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.
  • The Music: Felix Mendelssohn’s seminal 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.
  • The Opener: Two ballets by Canadian choreographers Shawn Hounsell and Peter Quanz start the evening with passion and drama.
