American Repertory Ballet to Perform A Midsummer Night’s Dream at RVCC

The Theatre at Raritan Valley Community College in Branchburg will present American Repertory Ballet in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Saturday, March 19, at 3 p.m. The presentation is part of the Theatre’s Major Artists Series. Set to an enchanting score by Felix Mendelssohn, ARB Artistic Director Douglas Martin’s new full-length ballet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, brings to life the wit and splendor of one of William Shakespeare’s most popular comedies. The ballet, featuring brand-new choreography, costumes, and sets, portrays the weaving tales of the cunning fairies, quarreling lovers, and a hilariously amateur acting group as their paths cross in a magical forest. Broadwayworld.com has written of American Repertory Ballet’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream: “the wealth of humor and earnest sentiment in the Martin version captures Shakespeare’s own mood.” Tickets cost $25 and $35.
