A Midsummers Night Dream

Event Details

Due to the ongoing restrictions on live performances, and mindful of the need to limit all but essential travel, the Royal New Zealand Ballet (RNZB) must regretfully announce the cancellation of all performances of A Midsummer Night’s Dream that were due to take place in Auckland.

A fantastical world of dazzling dance, music and enchantment.  Lovers, fairies, mischief and moonlight conspire in Shakespeare’s classic tale, vividly retold with sparkling steps and Mendelssohn’s famous score.

Created for the RNZB by one of the most sought-after choreographers on the international stage, Liam Scarlett, A Midsummer Night’s Dream was an overnight sensation at its premiere, with capacity audiences throughout its first New Zealand tour. Distinguished designer Tracy Grant Lord created the glorious vision of Shakespeare’s iconic characters and enchanted wood, illuminated with lighting by Kendall Smith.

Performances will be accompanied by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Hamish McKeich.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a co-production between the Royal New Zealand Ballet and Queensland Ballet.
