A Midsummer Night's Dream

Yesterday afternoon I saw the New York City Ballet's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, a two act ballet set to a Mendelsohn score.

The ballet was lovely and dreamlike. Intoxicating beauty. Although parts of the first act dragged a bit for me (I suspect I am not a fan of Mendelsohn), the second act completely popped. The set was gorgeously precious and each dance was masterful and exuberant.
