Production details

In NBT's dance version of A Midsummer Night's Dream (2003), the romantic antics of a touring dance company are played out as it travels by sleeper train from London to Edinburgh. Dior inspired costumes and stylish black and white sets provide a dazzling contrast to the glorious Technicolor of the dream world, whilst David Nixon's choreography brings out the comedy, romance and entanglements of this enchanting story. A Midsummer Night's Dream was nominated in the Best New Dance Production category at the 2004 Laurence Olivier Awards.
