THE DREAM: The Australian Ballet Live

The Australian Ballet & Sharmill Films Present THE DREAM Live in cinema! Includes a glass of bubbles with ticket price.

Part one of our Frederick Ashton double-bill is The Dream, an airy, romantic work created to celebrate the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s birth, and a homage to his play A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Set in an enchanted wood, Ashton’s ballet captures the play's themes of love and magic, exploring a poetic space of imagination away from the ‘everyday world.’ Set to Mendelssohn’s tender score, The Dream features vivid characters and a storyline transporting audiences to a realm where the human meets the supernatural.

Choreography - Frederick Ashton
Music - Felix Mendelssohn arranged by John Lanchbery
Costume and set design - David Walker
Lighting design - John B Read

The Dream is generously supported by The Arthur and Roma Norcott Fund and The Frank and Thora Pearce Fund.
