BALLET AUSTIN PRESENTS
A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM
February 11-13, 2022 | The Long Center
Delight your Valentine with a trip to an enchanted forest, where mortal and magical beings deliver loads of laughs while looking for love! Artistic Director Stephen Mills presents William Shakespeare’s tale of premarital mix-ups in a playful ballet that’s perfect for all ages. A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM showcases Mills’ choreographic agility and his dancers’ comedic talents. The production is so beloved that the prestigious John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., invited Ballet Austin to perform MIDSUMMER on its stage in January 2002, and this light-hearted romp remains a favorite with Central Texas audiences. Treat your special someone to the original rom-com!
