New Production! Enter Shakespeare's poetic world of elves and fairies, as envisioned by choreographer George Balanchine. Entering the Paris Opera Ballet’s repertoire for the first time, this magical piece, danced to the stage music by Mendelssohn, features sets and costumes by fashion legend Christian Lacroix. Faithful to the Bard’s vocabulary whilst adding a subtle touch of pantomime, this is grand, virtouso entertainment.
Choreography: George Balanchine. Conductor: Simon Hewett. Cast: TBC. Duration: approx. 2h, incl. interval.
