A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Mendelssohn/Balanchine)
Balanchine’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream was performed by NYCB as part of their first season at SPAC in 1966. The full-length story ballet is based on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, one of his happiest and most loved comedies. It is called a “Dream” because of the unrealistic events the characters experience in the play — real, yet unreal, such as crossed lovers, meaningless quarrels, forest chases leading to more confusion, and magic spells woven by the infamous Puck.
