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.
- A historic Shakespeare year: The Metropolitan Ballet celebrates 400 years of Shakespearean works this season with performances of two of the Bard’s most famous works: this ballet and Romeo & Juliet.
The Fine Print
About Metropolitan Ballet
Founded in 2002 by Erik Sanborn, a Minnesota native whose art has taken him to stages across 25 countries, the Metropolitan Ballet curates a company of skilled dancers, some with ties to such prestigious companies as the Bolshoi Ballet. The curriculum is grounded in the Vaganova method of ballet, which emphasizes a strong core and full-body perfection of movement. The company also stays busy with a full season of performances, with lavishly costumed dancers moving through dramatic stories that have ranged from Dracula to The Nutcracker.
