Fort Wayne Ballet Presents:

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

FOLLOW ALONG THE FOREST PATH INTO THIS WINSOME, DREAMY, AND SLIGHTLY MISCHIEVOUS ROMANTIC COMEDY as Fort Wayne Ballet’s professional company enacts and encounters the antics of Shakespeare’s energetic A Midsummer Night’s Dream! Two young couples of hapless humans stumble into a magical realm and become the humor of feuding fairies, whimsical gods, and the oh-so-plucky Puck. Lots of plots include loves and longings, marriages and misconceptions — but is it real? … or just a silly dream?!
