With the original play dating back to 1596, this version sees the romantic antics of a touring dance company played out on one midsummer night as the company travels by sleeper train from London to Edinburgh.

In addition:

Dior inspired costumes and stylish black and white sets provide a dazzling contrast to the glorious Technicolor of the dream-world, while, set to music by Mendelssohn and Brahms, David Nixon’s choreography brings out the comedy, romance and entanglements of this enchanting story.

There’s also a ‘Ballet Explored’ event on the morning of Thursday 6 and pre-show talk at 6.30pm.
