In 1962 George Balanchine created his version of Shakespeare's comedy for New York City Ballet. Faithful to the Bard's vocabulary whilst adding a subtle touch of pantomime, he portrays a complex love story in two acts and six scenes. Theseus, Duke of Athens, and Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons, become caught up in a domestic quarrel between the king of the elves and the queen of the fairies which results in the intervention of the mischievous Puck and his magic potion along with a troupe of amateur actors. The denouement is celebrated in the form of a grand virtuoso entertainment.

Director: Vincent Bataillon and George Balanchine
Writer: William Shakespeare and Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy
Cast: Simon Hewett, Pranvera Lehnert, Anne-Sophie Ducret, Principal Dancers and Corps de Ballet
