A TIMELESS PLAY BROUGHT TO LIFE THROUGH BALLET

Begin your summer by entering the realm of A Midsummer Night’s Dream: a world of dance, romance, misunderstanding, and magic.

Bruce Wells’ choreography illuminates Shakespeare’s enduring tale through beautiful visuals and clear storytelling–providing a spectacular finale to Milwaukee Ballet’s season.

Felix Mendelssohn’s music and fairy songs will be performed live by Milwaukee Ballet Orchestra, Milwaukee Children’s Choir, and Florentine Opera artists and students from Milwaukee Ballet School & Academy will join the cast.

 

THE PLOT

Fairies and mortals alike navigate romantic conundrums against the backdrop of an enchanted woodland…

A young couple tries to elope, a jilted lover attempts to win back her beloved’s heart, and a quarrel threatens the relationship of the fairy king and queen.

A LOVE STORY

A love potion and case of mistaken identities further complicate matters.

Nevertheless, “happily ever after” comes to all in the end!
