A Midsummer Night's Dream
Follow along with the New York State Ballet as we travel through the forest and Fairyland in Shakespeares A Midsummer Nights Dream. Set to Mendelssohn's enchanting score, performed by a live orchestra headed by Music Director Jared Chase, this full-length classical ballet will feature students from the New York State Ballets training academy as well as choral singers from local area high schools in addition to Company members and Graduate Program students from our professional company.
Filled with fairies, fireflies, and flowers, this ballet tells the tale of Oberon, the King of the Fairies, and Titania, the Queen of the Fairies, along with a cast of characters that get swept along in their magical antics. Join Puck, a mischievous elf; Bottom, a poor lost traveler who quickly finds himself changed into something he does not recognize; Helena and Demetrius, Hermia and Lysander, two sets of lovers whose trip into the forest does not go as planned; and the Duke of Athens who only wants to marry his love Hippolyta the Queen of the Amazons.
This fun and magical story is a classic for all ages. Brought to the Hochstein stage by Artistic Director Katherine Johnson, Ballet Master Robert Royce, and Graduate Program Director Alexandra Brydsten, once again the New York State Ballet is sure to delight its audience.
"The course of true love never did run smooth."
- William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream
