A Midsummer Night's Dream

A Midsummer Night's Dream

“The jewel in John Neumeier’s oeuvre.”
- Hamburger Morgenpost

“The course of true love never did run smooth,” says Lysander in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Shakespeare used that chaos brilliantly to create his most delightful comedy. Houston Ballet is the first American company to welcome this production – staged by acclaimed Hamburg Ballet Artistic Director John Neumeier – into its repertoire. With its love-struck Athenians, meddlesome fairies and bumbling troupe of amateur actors, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a cacophony of magic and merriment. This colorful production will delight children and adults alike.
