The Dream

Frederick Ashton's "The Dream" is his delightful interpretation of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream".

The complicated love live of two couples are complicated even further by the arrival of Oberon and Titania -- the King and Queen of the Fairies.

Lysander loves Hermia, who herself loves Lysander. And Helena loves Demetrius, who used to love Helena but now loves Hermia. When Hermia's father insists that she choose Demetrius, Hermia runs off into the forest with Lysander... where Oberon and Titania are having their own battle of love.

As the real and unreal worlds collide, romance struggles to survive and unlikely unions are forged.
