Coastal City Ballet Presents A Midsummer Night’s Dream: Win Tickets

Comments 46 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Coastal City Ballet closes its 2017/18 season with the remount of Irene Schneider’s enchanting ballet, Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, May 19 at Vancouver Playhouse and June 8 at Surrey Arts Centre. Set to the exquisite music of Felix Mendelssohn, this full-length ballet, which premiered in 2013, will showcase the prodigious talents of the Lower Mainland’s finest young dancers in their season finale.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

When: May 19, 2018 8:00pm
Where: Vancouver Playhouse (600 Hamilton St, Vancouver)
Tickets: Available online now.

There will also be a performance at the Surrey Arts Centre (13750 88 Ave) on June 8, 2018.

Commissioned from Schneider, former Artistic Director of Germany’s Magdeburg Ballet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of more than 60 original dance works developed by the choreographer for ballet companies and opera houses around the world. Created for families and children of all ages, this adventurous performance features lavish sets, spritely costumes, and a delightful score.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of magic, mischief, and mistaken identities. Two sets of lovers have fled the city for the forest where they become entangled in a lover’s quarrel between the Fairy King and Queen. Matters swiftly become more complicated with the introduction of the incorrigible Puck, a haphazardly applied love potion, and a crew of rough craftsmen attempting to rehearse a play. In the end, naturally, love conquers all and each character enjoys their happy ending.

Building on two successful, sold-out performances – 2016’s Swan Lake and 2017’s Giselle, Coastal City Ballet continues its tradition of spotlighting BC’s most promising dance talent as they prepare to launch to the world stage.
