In Northern Ballet's adaptation of the Shakespeare play, which is co-directed by Patricia Doyle, the romantic antics of a touring dance company are played out as it travels by sleeper train from London to Edinburgh. Nixon's choreography brings out the comedy, romance and entanglements of this enchanting story. His Dior-inspired costumes, along with stylish black and white sets, provide a dazzling contrast to the glorious technicolour of the dreamworld. The production premiered at West Yorkshire Playhouse in 2004 to great acclaim.
