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—there’s a lot to love in Shake­speare’s com­edy, and even more to love in the Royal New Zealand Bal­let’s tour­ing adap­ta­tion of it. Set to a score by Men­delssohn and per­formed by this world class as­sort­ment of dancers, “A Mid­sum­mer Night’s 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
