Paris Opera Ballet: A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM
New Production! Enter Shakespeare’s poetic world of elves and fairies, as envisioned by choreographer George Balanchine. Entering the Paris Opera Ballet’s repertoire for the first time, this magical piece, danced to the stage music by Mendelssohn, features sets and costumes by fashion legend Christian Lacroix. Faithful to the Bard’s vocabulary whilst adding a subtle touch of pantomime, this is grand, virtouso entertainment. Captured live at Palais Garnier Paris, 23 Mar 2017.
Screening as part to the 2016/17 Palace Opera & Ballet cinema season
Duration: 120 min
