Midsummer Night's Dream
April 25 - May 6, 2018
Choreographer: Alexander Ekman
Music: Mikael Karlsson
Featuring Swedish Pop sensation Anna von Hausswolff
Swedish trailblazer Alexander Ekman returns to Chicago for the North American premiere of his most daring and wildest production yet. A fully immersive theatrical experience, this ode to the summer solstice relishes in joyful abandon and dreamlike fantasy, as the Joffrey transports you to a world of non-stop adventure. Think Shakespeare? Think again. Ekman's Midsummer is a celebration unlike any other.
