The Royal New Zealand Ballet presents The Vodafone Season of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a new ballet by Liam Scarlett.

This winter, be transported to a magical 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.

British choreographer Liam Scarlett is one of the most sought-after choreographers on the international stage. Appointed The Royal Ballet’s first Artist in Residence in 2012, he has created a string of acclaimed works for Covent Garden and for leading international companies including New York City Ballet, English National Ballet, San Francisco Ballet and American Ballet Theatre.

Distinguished New Zealand designer Tracy Grant Lord (Cinderella, Romeo and Juliet) has created a glorious new vision of Shakespeare’s iconic characters and enchanted wood, illuminated with lighting by Kendall Smith (Giselle).

This is a spectacular world premiere – for young and old, lovers of dance, music and sheer theatrical magic. 

A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be performed with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra (Wellington), Christchurch Symphony Orchestra (Christchurch) and Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra (Auckland), conducted by Nigel Gaynor.
