American Repertory Ballet Announces
‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ at State Theatre in New Brunswick, N.J.
(New Brunswick, N.J.) — American Repertory Ballet is pleased to announce A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the State Theatre on Thursday, October 13 at 8:00 p.m. The performance is part of its 2016 fall series. Led by Artistic Director Douglas Martin, ARB will once again present the finest ballet available to the residents of New Jersey and beyond. Tickets are currently available and start at $27.
Martin's full-length ballet, A Midsummer Night's Dream, premiered in early 2015 to high praise. Set to an enchanting score by Felix Mendelssohn, the ballet brings to life the wit and splendor of one of William Shakespeare's most popular comedies. Featuring colorful choreography, costumes and sets, the story portrays the weaving tales of cunning fairies, quarreling lovers and a hilariously amateur acting group as their paths cross in a magical forest.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Choreography: Artistic Director Douglas Martin
Music: Felix Mendelssohn
“Wonderful. I smiled from beginning to end.” — Critical Dance
“Feuding lovers, doltish tradesmen, and endearing woodland fairies are the roles that have been taken on by ARB dancers. And it is heartening to see that Martin and his principals have made every role, every sequence count; in fact, they have even addressed and improved upon a few of the weak points in Shakespeare's material.” — Broadway World
American Repertory Ballet’s mission is to bring the joy, beauty, artistry and discipline of classical and contemporary dance to New Jersey and beyond through artistic and educational programs, presented by a financially responsible organization.
