Madison Ballet Presents A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM
Love, mischief, magic and folly. In Madison on nights like these, it feels like anything is possible; conquer success, taste forbidden love, push boundaries. Close your eyes and imagine a dream night as we bring Madison's dreams to life through dance.
The finale for Madison Ballet's remarkable 38th season is A Midsummer Night's Dream, an inspiring achievement of storytelling through dance. World-renowned choreographer Peter Anastos brings Shakespeare's classic comedy to life, set to Felix Mendelssohn's delightful score.
