SNB presents a new modern edgy ballet version of the famous Shakespeare tale, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, in three performances: as part of the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival Monday Night Series on July 23 at 7:30 PM at Sand Harbor; at the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday, August 5, 2018 at 4:00 PM, and at the Carson City Community Center on August 11, 2018 at 7:30 PM. New York director/interdisciplinary artist, Ananda Bena-Weber, has reimagined this traditional tale for a contemporary audience creating a steam punk fantasy that embodies the subtle insights into the many permutations of the love relationship. Artistic Director/choreographer, Rosine Bena, joins her daughter creating a world of cloying embraces, thrashing resistance and power struggles that are played out in the fairy tale realm where ideal partnership relationships become distorted for a time.
The production features the SNB full company of professional dancers with wonderful leading dancers from out of state.
The is not a free event. Tickets are available at http://www.sierranevadaballet.org/performances/midsummer-nights-dream-2.
(Note: Event is at 7:30 p.m., not 7:00 as indicated earlier.)
