CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)

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.
