Presented By Tamworth City Dance Academy
Melbourne City Ballet comes to the city for the first time with a magical, neoclassical ballet interpretation of the William Shakespeare classic, A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
This adaption explores three different stories within the border of Athens and Fairyland. Whilst the Amazonian Queen and Athenian King prepare for their wedding, two Athenian couples are caught in an arranged marriage dilemma which is only made worse by the feud of the King and Queen of the Fairies.
"Melbourne City Ballet put on yet another brilliant performance...elegant and gracious qualities throughout...a truly magical performance by all!" - DARCIE VIRTUE, DANCETRAIN MAGAZINE
A Midsummer Night’s Dream is suitable to both new and more sophisticated classical ballet palates, with an excerpt being selected in 2015 to be performed at the Australian Dance Awards in Adelaide.
With a full cast of talented artists, dazzling costumes and beautiful sets, Artistic Director Michael Pappalardo will take audiences on a journey to experience the magic, mischief and love that is A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
