The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami- Dade County (@arshtcenter) is proud to continue the 11th season of its free FAMILY FEST series with Miami City Ballet’s (@miamicityballet) Community Engagement program, which offers children and families an interactive, behind-the-scenes look at the art of ballet.
Join Miami City Ballet (MCB) for the enchanting first act of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Shakespeare’s timeless tale of love and magic, reality and illusion. With a fairytale cast (including MCB’s breathtaking dancers, children, and vocalists), Felix Mendelssohn’s glorious music, along with spectacular sets and costumes by acclaimed artist Michele Oka Doner, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a dazzling spectacle for families and audiences of all ages.
