Nick Bottom and Titiana are just two of the characters in the woodland realm of fairy fantasy in CSB’s ballet performance.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Niwot High

The Centennial State Ballet (CSB) will be presenting A Midsummer Night’s Dream as its final performance in the season on April 27 and 28 at Niwot High School auditorium.

The ballet, originally choreographed by George Balanchine to Felix Mendelssohn's music, originates from Shakespeare's play of the same name, wherein the audience follows the complex love story in the world of elves and fairies culminating in a wedding celebration.

Featuring the impish Puck, magical dragonflies and fireflies, a slumbering donkey and lovers from both the fairy and mortal worlds, audiences of all ages will be entranced as the beloved story comes to life onstage through the artistry of the CSB performers.

The CSB interpretation is choreographed by Kristin Kingsley, CSB’s executive artistic director, who took her inspiration from George Balanchine. The event’s musical accompaniment features the CSB Chamber Orchestra with score by Felix Mendelssohn under the direction of Conductor Rick Thomas.

A special free final dress rehearsal performance is available for high school students and faculty on Friday, April 26 at 6 p.m. Regular showtimes are Saturday, April 27, 2018 at 2 p.m. and Sunday, April 28, 2018 at 1 p.m. The performance will take place at Niwot High School Auditorium at 8989 Niwot Road in Niwot.
