"The classically based but decidedly contemporary choreography flows smoothly, creating clever transitions from scene to scene." - Critical Dance
Experience this enchanting story filled with love, magic, and deception. Fantasy meets visually exquisite dance as choreographer John Alleyne paints the stage in this full-length ballet based on Henry Purcell's opera of the same name, and on Shakespeare's magical comedy, A Midsummer Night's Dream. Follow Puck, as the fairy with a penchant for causing chaos, ensnaring both humans and fairies alike in romance and confusion with her magical flower blossom. is an exploration of the contrasting elements of fantasy and reality - dark and light, mortal and immortal, male and female - and what happens when these powerful elements collide with one another.
