PNB – A Midsummer Night’s Dream

PNB’s production of Shakespeare’s comedy charms everyone who enters its enchanted realm. Deep in a Northwest-inspired fairy kingdom, a quarrel between the King Oberon and Queen Titania sparks mayhem when mischief-maker Puck mismatches mortal lovers and causes Titania to romance donkey-headed Bottom. All’s well that ends well by Act II, which opens with Mendelssohn’s famous Wedding March and celebrates ideal love with some of Balanchine’s most beautiful choreography. Featuring the PNB Orchestra.
