The Dream hosted by the Philadelphia Ballet

Showed from May 9 to May 12, 2024

Academy of Music
240 South Broad Street
Philadelphia, PA 19102


Adapted from A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare

with George Balanchine’s Prodigal Son

Frederick Ashton’s glorious take on Shakespeare’s timeless and hilarious comedy dazzled Philadelphia audiences. The quarrelsome lovers Oberon and Titania, dancing fairies, a braying donkey, and Mendelssohn’s incandescent music make for a magical evening. This dream world is paired with the powerful realism of Balanchine’s Prodigal Son, which showcases some of Balanchine’s most daring choreography, set to equally daring music by Prokofiev and astonishing sets by the great painter, Georges Rouault.


The production of Prodigal Son is intended for mature audiences. Parental discretion is advised.
