Nittany Ballet presents: A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Nittany Ballet presents Peter Anastos’
A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Sunday, May 29th and
Monday, May 30th
A ballet about the transforming power of love, Peter Anastos’ A Midsummer Night’s Dream, is based on William Shakespeare’s comedy about the romantic adventures and misadventures, quarrels and reunitings, of two pairs of mortal lovers and the king and queen of the fairies. With a special presentation of the opening movement of Serenade… Serenade is a milestone in the history of dance. It is the first original ballet George Balanchine created in America and is one of the signature works of New York City Ballet’s repertory. Balanchine began the ballet as a lesson in stage technique and worked unexpected rehearsal events into the choreography. A student’s fall or late arrival to rehearsal became part of the ballet.
