Byron Ballet

Byron Ballet brings to life the humour and love bloopers of Shakespeare’s famous comedy, A Midsummer Night’s Dream on Saturday.

If you’ve never seen a ballet before this is one of the easiest to follow with music everyone will recognise.

Following rave reviews from last season performing ‘The Dream’, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is easily on the shortlist for Byron Ballet’s finest production in their 16 year history.

It’s not every day we get to see four athletic male dancers on stage together in the Byron Theatre and this time the producers have flown in five professional guest dancers to join their local cast and corps de ballet.

Don’t miss this one. Four shows this weekend Friday-Sunday including a matinee on Saturday.
