Romance run awry is at the heart of this playful ballet by Artistic Director Stephen Mills, based on William Shakespeare’s famous comedy of the same name. In 2002, Ballet Austin premiered this delightful work at The Kennedy Center who commissioned Mills to create it for their Youth and Family Public Performance Series. This family-friendly production, perfect for all ages, showcases Mills’ choreographic agility and his dancers’ comedic talent. Join us Mother’s Day weekend for a trip into an enchanted forest, where mortal and magical beings get mixed up looking for love, while delivering loads of laughs!
