Based on A Midsummer Night's Dream, Sir Frederick Ashton's The Dream marks 450 years since Shakespeare's birth. For over 70 years, American Ballet Theatre has wowed audiences everywhere with their passion, innovation and athleticism.

<p>stuporwoman is an operatic and humorous fairytale of motherhood and parenting in the twenty-first century featuring the stunning, vibrant movement style of St. Lucia-born choreographer Tania Isaac. Generated through a series of workshops with women from a diverse range of racial and economic backgrounds, stuporwoman offers a tongue-in-cheek, serious yet satirical peek at multigenerational perspectives on work, family, conflict and the often absurd results of balancing it all. With original text written by Guggenheim Award-winning playwright Bridget Carpenter, and live music by Philadelphia Opera Company violinist Heather Zimmerman, stuporwoman navigates culture, class and the expectations of motherhood in an interdisciplinary work of dance, music, scenery and verse for audiences of all ages.
