Shakespeare's enchanted wood and vivid characters are given a fresh new life.

In an unprecedented artistic coup, Liam Scarlett, one of the world's most sought-after choreographers, has created a full-length co-production for the Royal New Zealand Ballet and Queensland Ballet.

Scarlett's witty choreography blended with Mendelssohn's beautiful music, coupled with bold new costumes, set design and lighting, creates a revitalised interpretation of A Midsummer Night's Dream that will enchant all ages.

Design by Tracy Grant Lord (Cinderella, Romeo and Juliet)
Lighting by Kendall Smith (Giselle)
Music by Felix Mendelssohn, performed by the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra
Conducted by Nigel Gaynor
