Casanova Unmasked

A Midsummer Night's Dream

Northern Ballet brings its magic to Shakespeare's most bewitching play in this critically acclaimed dance version of A Midsummer Night's Dream.


The romantic antics of a touring dance company are played out on one midsummer night as the company travels by sleeper train from London to Edinburgh. Dior inspired costumes and stylish black and white sets provide a dazzling contrast to the glorious Technicolor of the dream-world, whilst David Nixon's choreography brings out the comedy, romance and entanglements of this enchanting story.

Set to music by Mendelssohn and Brahms, A Midsummer Night's Dream is one of Northern Ballet's most magical productions.
