Richmond Ballet's A Midsummer Night’s Dream with the Richmond Symphony
- Date Saturday, February 11, 2017
- Time 2:00 pm
- Venue Carpenter Theatre
William Soleau’s delightful telling of Shakespeare’s popular tale of love, both lost and found, sprinkled with a clever brand of mischief, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, returns this coming season to warm up the wintery month of February. Last presented in 2008, this unique collaboration between the Ballet, the Symphony, singers, and narrators, takes audiences on a journey through the mystical, woodland court of Tatiana and Oberon and the sumptuous and regal palaces of ancient Greece as the adventures of four sets of lovers become intertwined through a series of comical events and tricks set about by the infamous sprite, Puck. Soleau’s classic and playful choreography will be brought to life as the entire Richmond Ballet Company joins together on the Carpenter Theatre’s historic stage. Paired with Felix Mendelssohn’s sparkling score, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a treat for all ages.
