From the creator of The Little Mermaid and Nijinsky:
A Midsummer Night’s Dream, February 12 & 13 only (buy tickets)

 

They’re back! We can’t wait for the return of the acclaimed Hamburg Ballet to our stage next week, with just two performances of one of John Neumeier’s most popular creations: a joyous ballet re-imagining of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

One of ballet’s leading choreographers, John Neumeier (who is Artistic Director of the Hamburg Ballet) is no stranger to San Francisco. The last time we hosted his company—with Neumeier’s dance theater epic Nijinsky last year—performances were sold out:

In 2010 and 2011, we performed his dark, unique interpretation of The Little Mermaidan international sensation since its European premiere in 2005 (also available on DVD and Blu-Ray here):
