Hamish McKeich Conductor
Mendelssohn A Midsummer Night's Dream

Asset 1

The Royal New Zealand Ballet in association with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra transports you to a fantastical world of dazzling dance, music and enchantment.  Lovers, fairies, mischief and moonlight conspire in Shakespeare’s classic tale, vividly retold with sparkling steps and Mendelssohn’s famous score, with additional music arrangement by Nigel Gaynor.

With choreography from Liam Scarlett, the glorious vision of Shakespeare’s iconic characters and enchanted wood by designer Tracy Grant Lord and lighting from Kendall Smith, A Midsummer Night’s Dream was an overnight sensation at its premiere in 2015.

Don’t miss your chance to see this spectacular ballet when it returns to Aotearoa – a wonderful treat for young and old, lovers of dance, music and sheer theatrical magic.

Performances in Wellington, Christchurch and Auckland will be accompanied by the NZSO, conducted by Hamish McKeich, all other performances will feature an NZSO recording.
