A TIMELESS PLAY BROUGHT TO LIFE THROUGH BALLET

Begin your summer by entering the realm of A Midsummer Night’s Dream: a world of dance, romance, misunderstanding and magic.

Bruce Wells’ choreography illuminates Shakespeare’s enduring tale through beautiful visuals and clear storytelling–providing a spectacular finale to Milwaukee Ballet’s season. Students from Milwaukee Ballet School & Academy join the international Company and Milwaukee Ballet II.

Felix Mendelssohn’s music and fairy songs will be performed live by Milwaukee Ballet Orchestra, Milwaukee Children’s Choir and Florentine Opera Company artists.

“gorgeous dance, theatrical magic, and unabashed escapism”

- Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

THE PLOT

Fairies and mortals alike navigate romantic conundrums against the backdrop of an enchanted woodland…

A young couple tries to elope, a jilted lover attempts to win back her beloved’s heart, and a quarrel threatens the relationship of the fairy king and queen.

A LOVE STORY

A love potion and case of mistaken identities further complicate matters.

Nevertheless, “happily ever after” comes to all in the end!
