The Story

The ballet A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a down to earth comedy and fairy tale romance, augmented by fairies, fireflies, and creatures of the forest. The ballet has widespread appeal for artists and audience members alike. Based on Shakespeare’s richly poetic descriptions of the fairy kingdom, this performance features music by romantic composer Felix Mendelssohn.

In addition, Ballet Chelsea will be performing Les Sylphides, a one act ballet set to the music of Frédéric Chopin. This “romantic reverie” is based around a young poet out walking when he encounters sylphs (spirits) dancing in the moonlight. This famous ballet is performed by nearly every professional ballet company in the world.

Purchase Tickets

Tickets are available online at and at the door at the performances. The show is appropriate for all ages. Refreshments and flowers will be available for purchase before the show and during intermission.
