DANCE REVIEW | 'A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM'
Love, in the Abstract
By ANNA KISSELGOFF
"George Balanchine first read Shakespeare in Russian. Perhaps that is
why his ballet "A Midsummer Night's Dream" for the New York City Ballet
has less of an English literary tone than a musical sensibility derived
from its Mendelssohn score. Yet Balanchine's knowledge of Shakespeare's
play was deep."
