A Midsummer Night’s Dream Irmo
February 1 @ 2:00 pm–4:00 pm
The comical, twisted love triangle amongst a magical fairy kingdom is making its way to Irmo High School on Thursday, February 1 in Columbia City Ballet’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream
The ballet that first brought our Artistic Director WilliamStarrett to Columbia in 1977, A Midsummer Night’s Dream brings the whimsy and magic of Shakespeare’s greatest romantic comedy to the stage for the sixth time in 41 years. Four lovers and a troupe of amateur actors are caught in a quarrel between Oberon and Titania, King and Queen of the fairies, turning their world upside down with hilarious consequences. Starrett creates a performance offering a blend of comedy, classical dance, and modern-day storytelling – all in one spell-binding event perfect for the entire family.
The ballet was first choreographed by Starrett in 1987, and inspired by Sir Frederick Ashton’s interpretation.
