"A ballet about the transforming power of love, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, is based on William Shakespeare’s comedy about the romantic adventures and misadventures, quarrels and reuniting, of two pairs of mortal lovers, Hermia and Lysander, and the fairy king, Oberon, and Titania, his queen. Through the course of the story, loners come and go and Oberon’s servant Puck creates unintentional mischief. It leads to a hysterical comedy of misguided love. In the end, all is righted and the story concludes with a beautiful wedding in the forest. It is a classic story brought to life through ballet and the music of Mendelssohn. "
