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.

This was the first time I attended a Washington Ballet performance. I was extremely pleased and impressed. Great sets, beautiful costumes, and inspired dancing. A huge well done. If this is the calibre of TWB, I'd recommend it to everyone.
Join the dancers of The Washington Ballet for this swashbuckling adventure of pirates, pashas, and the slave girls who love them in internationally-regarded classical repetiteur Anna-Marie Holmes' thrilling production of the 19th century classic by Marius Petipa. The story of lovers Conrad and Medora, the evil Seid Pasha, and a company of corsairs enchants and excites. Don’t miss this adventuresome company premiere!
