Shakespeare’s classic comedy tale comes alive in Drysdale

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is set in the great city of Athens, where the lives of four Athenian lovers’ are twisted and turned by the meddling of the fairies who live in a forest. When the young lovers find themselves lost in the woods, they mysteriously become infatuated with the wrong person.

In this hilarious tale of how falling in love can make fools of us all, Shakespeare’s classic tale has been re-interpreted by the Melbourne City Ballet.

Choreographed by Artistic Director Michael Papparlardo, audiences will see a range of diverse movement, executed by some of Australia’s most talented artists.

“A beautiful, colourful and fast paced ballet, so much love and planning has made this work simply divine” Papparlardo says.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be performed on stage at the Potato Shed in Drysdale on Thursday August 24.

Tickets can be booked at the Potato Shed or over the phone on 5251 1998 or at the City of Greater Geelong Customer Service Centre.
