A Midsummer Night’s Dream DETAILS

From the organizer:

We are thrilled to share the exciting news about The Houston Ballet’s upcoming 2023-2024 Season, which celebrates Stanton Welch AM’s incredible 20-year tenure as Artistic Director of the Company. This season promises to be one of the best yet, as it features a diverse range of works from some of the most notable choreographers in dance history and up-and-coming creators. With six world premieres and three Houston Ballet premieres on the program, audiences will experience a spectacular lineup of groundbreaking works from Welch’s remarkable 20-year tenure.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream Choreographer: John Neumeier | Music: Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy and Gyorgy Ligeti September 8 – 17, 2023

 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.
