Queensland Ballet and Royal New Zealand Ballet co-presented an ethereal and bittersweet production A Mid Summer Night’s Dream.
Costume and Set Designer Tracy Grant Lord created a magnificent environment for the expressive dancers with forest bungalows under the moonlit sky.
The loveable fairy Puck, performed by Victor Estevez, reshaped a love triangle between the rustics when he confuses two men and casts the spell of the magic flower on them both.
Queensland Ballet and Royal New Zealand Ballet matched the humour intended for Shakespear’s masterpiece with this endearing creature who found love with queen of the fairies, Tatiana (Mia Heathcote).
Soft laughter hummed through the Playhouse Theatre as Bottom comes to term with his new form, one bottom shake at a time.
After a charming delivery of love, jealousy and mistaken identity, the naughty apprentice fairy under Oberon’s (Alexander Idaszak) instruction, Puck, brings order back into the forest of exotic creatures and brings true love back to light.
Queensland Ballet and Royal New Zealand Ballet’s A Mid Summer Night’s Dream was a delightful and spellbinding performance that brings laughter amongst small children and ‘bigger’ fairytale lovers.
