The Portland Ballet: A Midsummer Night’s Dream

The Portland Ballet presents John Clifford’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a witty confection of a ballet, danced to Felix Mendelssohn’s beautiful music. There will be two performances at the PSU Lincoln Performance Hall on May 11th at 1:00pm and 5:00pm. This amusing and elegant adaptation of Shakespeare’s comedy showcases a variety of challenging choreography: the fleet-footedness of fairies, the antics of rustics, as well as the style and grace of nobility. The magic begins with excited buzzing in the enchanted forest and ends with a grand pas de deux to celebrate a royal wedding. Along the way, fairies feud and stir up mischief, a merry buffoon turns into a donkey, and the queen of the fairies falls in love with him.
