Miami City Ballet Presents Season Grand Finale: A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM
Miami City Ballet (MCB) closes its 2018/19 season with the return of one of the Company's most extraordinary productions, the reimagining of A Midsummer Night's Dream, Balanchine's captivating story ballet based on William Shakespeare's timeless tale of love, magic, reality and illusion.

Miami City Ballet's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream transports audiences to the ocean floor, a perspective that's uniquely Floridian, through the creative collaboration of two internationally acclaimed artists: Michele Oka Doner's ravishing costumes and sets, and Wendall Harrington's innovative projection designs. Set to live Mendelssohn music (including the immortal Wedding March), this unforgettable oceanic spectacle features an impressive fairytale cast of 24 children, six vocalists and the breathtaking Miami City Ballet dancers.
