"In a forest near Snoqualmie...there is ballet and magic!" - DANCE Magazine
Deep inside an enchanted forest, A Midsummer Night’s Dream conjures all-ages magic each time it returns to stage. Based on Shakespeare’s comedy that chronicles confusions and reunions between pairs of mortal lovers and the king and queen of the fairies, this exquisitely detailed production entertains and enchants with every passing moment.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream boasts George Balanchine’s unrivaled choreography, Tony award-winning Martin Pakledinaz’s costumes and scenery, a celebrated score by Felix Mendelssohn, and magic-infused lighting design by PNB’s own Randall G. Chiarelli. A shimmering moon, stars, and fairy dust await.
