Ballet version of A Midsummer Night's Dream goes on tour

Date Posted: 01/07/2013

Northern Ballet’s Olivier Award-nominated production A Midsummer Night’s Dream, will tour the UK this autumn into spring 2014, beginning at West Yorkshire Playhouse on 6th September.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream sees the romantic antics of a touring dance company played out on one magical night as the troupe travels by sleeper train from London to Edinburgh.

It’s the final rehearsal and emotions run high as artistic temperaments clash with romantic entanglements.

When the time comes to leave for Edinburgh the tensions continue on board the train and as the company settle down for the night, the train enters a tunnel and the dream begins.
