Geneva Grand Theatre Ballet's "A Midnight's Summer Dream"
In his very personal appropriation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the choreographer Michel Kelemenis means business when he starts playfully pulling the strings of the comic play Shakespeare had imagined as a satire of Elizabethan society. In alluring tones, he leads his audience into a world where the marvellous and the mysterious rub elbows with the grotesque. Le Songe d’une nuit d’été (A Midnight's Summer Dream) is full of surprises: a forest with no trees or bushes, where rude mechanicals with dramatic ambitions bump into a donkey, the consequence of Oberon and Titania’s quarrel.
