Reuniting after the worldwide success of their ground-breaking co-production War Horse, England's Bristol Old Vic and South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company are back to create an exciting new take on Shakespeare's magical romantic comedy, focusing on transformation, survival and song. This re-imagining of A Midsummer's Night Dream finds its fantasy in mixing and even interchanging human and puppet characters, not to mention finding several ingenious forms for Puck, as the Bard's enchanted forest comes to life in a whole new way as part of the Kennedy Center's World Stages International Theater Festival.

The ballet was enjoyable. Juliet was excellent. She appeared flawless. Romeo less so. I would have liked to see more dancing. Too much time was spent on the villagers hopping around the square. Also the choreography tried to incorporate too may modern elements into the performance. I like my ballet a little more traditional. Overall, with the Goldstar discount, it was well worth it.
