Re-imagined in Full-length Ballet
A Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of magic, mischief, and mistaken identities. Two sets of lovers have fled the city for the forest where they become entangled in a lover’s quarrel between the Fairy King and Queen. Matters swiftly become more complicated with the introduction of the incorrigible Puck, a haphazardly applied love potion, and a crew of rough craftsmen attempting to rehearse a play. In the end, naturally, love conquers all and each character enjoys their happy ending.
Building on two successful, sold-out performances – 2016’s Swan Lake and 2017’s Giselle, Coastal City Ballet continues its tradition of spotlighting BC’s most promising dance talent as they prepare to launch to the world stage.
