Production details

This funny and heart-warming adaptation features vibrant classical choreography danced by some of the finest dancers around. Mendelssohn's joyous music is interpreted by Artistic Director Darius James, and highlights include radiant costumes, sets and video projection. The Queen of the Fairies, Titania, and Puck, the mischievous messenger, inhabit the supernatural fairy kingdom. Bottom and his boot-wearing 'Rude Mechanicals' present their famous play Pyramus and Thisbe. And finally, the lovers, caught in a thrilling web of mistaken identity and confusion, finally find their way through the Athenian forest to an unforgettable and joyous reconciliation.
