About the Program

Oakland Ballet Company presents A Midsummer Night’s Dream – a whimsical evening of dance showcasing the choreographic vision of Artistic Director, Graham Lustig. The 2017 spring repertory season program will feature:

A Midsummer Night’s Dream (West Coast Premiere)
Enter the enchanted land of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a lush forest besieged by love triangles and feuding fairy kingdoms, awash with magic at every turn. Set to Felix Mendelssohn’s score and based on Shakespeare’s enduring play, Lustig’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream is an exploration of human relationships, and of how people resolve conflicts.

Consort (World Premiere)
Lustig’s newest work, Consort, explores the nature and intrigues of courtly love – drawing its inspiration from Shakespeare’s Fair Youth Sonnets and the music of the English Renaissance, including compositions by Thomas Tallis, William Byrd and Vaughan Williams.
