Let the Royal New Zealand Ballet transport you to a fantastical world of dazzling dance, music and enchantment. Following its hugely successful world premiere in 2015, the RNZB is thrilled to be bringing A Midsummer Night’s Dream back for Christmas 2021. Lovers, fairies, mischief and moonlight conspire in Shakespeare’s classic tale, vividly retold with sparkling steps and Mendelssohn’s famous score.
Created by one of the most sought-after choreographers on the international stage, Liam Scarlett, A Midsummer Night’s Dream was an overnight sensation at its premiere, with capacity audiences throughout its first New Zealand tour. Distinguished New Zealand designer Tracy Grant Lord created the glorious vision of Shakespeare’s iconic characters and enchanted wood, illuminated with lighting by Kendall Smith.
Don’t miss your chance to see this spectacular ballet when it returns to Aotearoa – a wonderful treat for young and old, lovers of dance, music and sheer theatrical magic.
Performances in Wellington, Christchurch and Auckland will be accompanied by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Hamish McKeich, all other performances will feature the NZSO recording from 2015.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a co-production between the Royal New Zealand Ballet and Queensland Ballet.
“All the elements of A Midsummer Night’s Dream envelops and welcomes the audience into a magical fairytale that will long remain in viewers’ memories.” - Theatre View
