Dream of Ballet, This Midsummer Afternoon


Fans of ballet, the works of Shakespeare, and great music will love the showing of a performance of the ballet A Midsummer Night’s Dream in the Medford Leas Theater on Saturday, Nov. 5 at 2 p.m. at the Medford Leas Theater located at 1 Medford Way. The two-act ballet was choreographed and set to music, composed by Felix Mendelssohn, accompanying Shakespeare’s play of the same name.

BBC Concert Orchestra Conductor Stewart Kershaw conducted; the production featured dancers from the Pacific Northwest Ballet, with choreography from George Ballanchine. Enjoy the ballet from the comfort of the Medford Leas Theater, which boasts a state-of-the-art projection screen and surround sound system that will immerse you in the performance and the music. Enjoy scrumptious hors d’oeuvres and other delicacies during intermission.

The great performances and cuisine are the next best thing to being at the concert in-person. A suggested donation of $5 is payable at the door. More information is available at http://www.medfordleas.org/event-categories/leasmusicast.
