It’s almost Valentine’s Day and you still don’t have any idea on what to do for your date. A bouquet of flowers and a bar of chocolate are out of the question; you want to do something different. Well, here’s something for you, When in Manila! Ballet Philippines’ A Midsummer Night’s Dream may just be your partner’s dream date!
Ballet Philippines’ A Midsummer Night’s Dream runs for three days only. The premiere is on Friday, perfect for those who scheduled their dates on a weekend. Following the successful Rama, Hari, Ballet Philippines promises to give you something new — a new twist to the classic romantic comedy of William Shakespeare.
Ballet meets comedy
Through the wonderful art of ballet, you will see the lives of mortals and fairies put together. The King of the Fairies, Oberon, commands the mischievous Puck to do something that would serve as a punishment to her Queen, Titania. But the move only resulted to a comedy of errors and madness as Puck makes the mistake.
