Based on Shakespeare's joyous romantic comedy, John Neumeier's A Midsummer Night's Dream follows the hijinks and hilarity that occur when a well-intentioned plan with a love potion goes awry. Following the thread of interwoven romances, the ballet travels from the Court of Athens to the Fairy Realm, where mayhem ensues. By cleverly combining the music of Mendelssohn, Ligeti, and traditional organ music, the score transports the audience into a fantasy world through choreography that demonstrates the narrative power of ballet.

Created in 1977 on Hamburg Ballet, A Midsummer Night's Dream is one of Neumeier's most famous works performed by companies around the globe. Houston Ballet was the first North American company to perform distinguished work in 2014.
