The magic returns to the Orpheum Theater this summer with CMF’s spectacular production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” which premiered during the summer of 2019. This unique production, conceived by former Metropolitan Opera ballerina Victoria Rinaldi, transports the audience to an enchanted wood to witness what hilarity unfolds, when fairies meddle with the love lives of mortals. All ends well with a triple wedding and gala ballet. Dancers from the country’s most elite dance programs join with students of CMF’s Orpheum Dance Program and don gossamer fairy wings in this midsummer comedic ballet. Actors, under the direction of theater artist Zach Gibson, provide comedic scenes and narration from Shakespeare’s play. The acting melds beautifully with the charming choreography by Margo Sappington and Victoria Rinaldi, and the Mendelssohn score is sumptuous, creating an evening that is a perfect combination of spoken word and dance.
