Midsummer Night’s Dream – Chicago
April 25 - May 5
The Joffrey Ballet brings back Alexander Ekman’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream” to the Chicago audience.
Far from a Shakespearean tale, Ekman’s ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’ is a mind-bending trip to a surreal realm of unearthly delights. Set during the traditional Scandinavian summer solstice festival, dancers celebrate a day of revelry and romance under the maypole, which soon unravels into an otherworldly dream. Ekman’s picturesque fusion of classical and contemporary ballet blurs the line between the real and the imagined and makes us wonder, is it all a dream?
