Keller Auditorium

Midsummer Night’s Dream

Magic and merriment abound in our joyful fall program. As the curtain rises, we meet a family of circus performers in the OBT premiere of Christopher Bruce’s Hush. This lighthearted and affectionate celebration of family life is imbued with Bruce’s unique physicality and warm humanity. Intensely musical and athletic, Hush will lift your spirits high. The excitement continues with George Balanchine’s sparkling Tchaikovsky Pas de Deux, an eight-minute treat of pure bravura and ballet technique. We conclude in an enchanted forest for the return of Christopher Stowell’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Based on Shakespeare’s famous comedy, this work has it all: star-crossed lovers, mischievous pranksters, and ethereal woodland fairies set to Mendelssohn’s beloved score performed live by the OBT Orchestra.
