2018 Spring Ballet

“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” and “The Enchanted Woods”

At Baker Hall, Zoellner Arts Center, Lehigh University – Friday, June 1, 2018

“A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, a ballet about the transforming power of love, is based on William Shakespeare’s comedy about the romantic adventures and misadventures, quarrels and reunitings of two pairs of mortal lovers and the king and queen of the fairies. It features the beautiful music of Felix Mendelssohn, a German composer of the Romantic era, who excelled in all aspects of music. A child prodigy, he wrote the overture to this work when he was only 17 years old.

“The Enchanted Woods” is a new comedic ballet, featuring beloved fairy tale characters and their hilarious misadventures as they stroll through the woods. With original music composed by Music Director Eugene Albulescu, Artistic Director Karen Knerr has choreographed this especially for Pennsylvania Youth Ballet students.
