Dive into an undersea fantasy inspired by South Florida’s glorious seascape.

Since its premiere in 2016, Miami City Ballet’s reimagining of Balanchine’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream has been beloved by audiences and acclaimed by critics. Now, enjoy the online premiere of this “shimmery, shadowy, magical jewel box of a show” (Miami Herald) from the comfort of your home.

You’ll be transported to the ocean floor in this unique vision of Shakespeare’s timeless tale of love. See the magically entangled lovers and fairy royalty as you’ve never seen them before – through the creative collaboration of two internationally acclaimed artists: Michele Oka Doner, with her ravishing costumes and sets, and Academy Award-winner Tarell Alvin McCraney’s dramatic direction.

With music by Mendelssohn, including the immortal Wedding March, the online premiere of A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a dazzling spectacle for your family to enjoy together.

“Brilliant choreography, vivid performance. The dancers seem like darting fish in the dark depths…. cinematic.” Miami Herald
