Get transported to a magical world of fairy tricksters, love potions and hilarious antics as Ballet Arizona presents its reimagined take on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream Feb. 13-16 with live accompaniment by The Phoenix Symphony at Symphony Hall. A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a spectacle for theater and ballet fans alike.
Set to Artistic Director Ib Andersen’s critically-acclaimed choreography, the masterpiece comes to life with all-new sets, new costumes, and the only professional ballet company in the Valley. Andersen celebrates his 20th anniversary as the artistic visionary of Ballet Arizona this season, and it was befitting to have one of his most beloved works reimagined to celebrate the milestone in his career.
The last Ballet Arizona full-length production created of this magnitude the creation of The Nutcracker in 2006, which is now acclaimed as one of the top 3 productions in the country by The New York Times. Earlier this year, Andersen premiered the dramatic work The Firebird to critical acclaim. A Midsummer Night’s Dream shows the lighter side of ballet and showcases Andersen’s spectacular ability to tell tales through movement.
