About A Midsummer Night's Dream

Enter Shakespeare’s enchanted forest of whimsy, mistaken identity, and jest — where fairies rule and love (eventually) reigns supreme. This Shakespearean favorite returns triumphantly to San Francisco after a 35-year absence. Created in 1962 to music by Felix Mendelssohn, "A Midsummer Night’s Dream" was George Balanchine’s first original full-length ballet and quickly hailed as a masterpiece — think adventures and misadventures, mischief and magic, woodland creatures and fairyland foibles. Beautiful costume and set designs by Martin Pakledinaz and radiant, magical choreography make this ballet a delight for all ages.
