The convention <-- is not until the end of May ... you weren't thinking that you've heard the last about Shakespeare's most romantic comedy here, were you?
I assure you that this growing obsession is only temporary, but for now expect to find traces of this reoccurring theme here at Dancing In The Rain, because this is my journal and ... this story is on my mind.
In a previous entry, Albert <-- added this comment:
Hey Coy, I don't know if you'd be into this or not, but George Balanchine choreographed Midsummers Night Dream as a ballet, and it's a truly magical production-- it's available on Amazon if you feel like forking out the bucks. I saw it live in NY and was blown away. lots of sprites and fairies, and an awesome Puck.
good luck! --Albert
I ordered a copy of the ballet on DVD and I watched it last night ... It truly was magical. You can click on the link under the photo above to take a look at the program notes, where you will find details about the ballet in the making.
Who would have thought that this entire story could have been portrayed entirely through mime and dance? The costuming was of particular interest ... I've been asking for visuals and it does not get much better than this.
A Mid Summer Night's Dream has been in this dance company's repertory since 1985 and I would love to see it live someday but for now I will watch it over and over on DVD. Thanks Alb ... I am grateful to have so many artsy friends here in J-Land and for the perfect recommendation!

Has anyone else watched this Ballet?
