The Royal New Zealand Bal­let’s “Mid­sum­mer Night’s Dream”

There’s a play within a play, en­chanted woods, a fairy queen run­ning game on a lit­eral asshead, and two ado­les­cent cou­ples wak­ing up naked in a field, all or­ches­trated by a shrewd and knav­ish sprite—The Royal New Zealand Bal­let’s tour­ing adap­ta­tion of Shake­speare’s mas­ter­piece is set to a score by Men­delssohn and per­formed by a world class as­sort­ment of dancers. This Dream is one you won’t want to wake up from. Oct 7-8, 7:45pm; Oct 9, 3pm. Sha Tin Town Hall, 1 Yuen Wo Rd., Sha Tin. $160-420 from The Tiger Lil­lies Per­form Ham­let

Ham­let gets a rock musical up­date as Bri­tish cult band The Tiger Lil­lies team up with Dan­ish con­tem­po­rary theater troupe Theatre Republique to retell the story of the young, tor­mented Dan­ish prince and the rain of blood which en­sues as he comes to terms with who re­ally killed his fa­ther. Bal­anc­ing touches of cabaret, opera and gypsy mu­sic and the mul­ti­me­dia ex­per­tise of Theatre Republique, this stage adap­ta­tion is set to be an un­for­get­table ex­pe­ri­ence. Sep 9-10, 8pm; Sep 11, 3pm. Kwai Ts­ing Theatre, 12 Hing Ning Rd.,
