A Midsummer Night’s Dream – The Ballet 8/11/2018 7:30pm



Sierra Nevada Ballet presents a new, modern and edgy ballet version of Shakespeare’s classic, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, with a cast of 30 dancers. New York director/interdisciplinary artist, Ananda Bena-Weber, has reimagined this traditional tale for a contemporary audience – creating a steam punk fantasy that infuses subtle insights into the many permutations of the love relationship. Artistic Director/choreographer, Rosine Bena, collaborates with Ananda to create a world of cloying embraces, thrashing resistance and power struggles that are played out in the fairy tale realm – where ideal partnership relationships become distorted for a time.
