HISTORIC SAN DIEGO CIVIC YOUTH BALLET IN BALBOA PARK PRESENTS
A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM AT THE CASA DEL PRADO, APRIL 4 – 8, 2018
Who: San Diego Civic Youth Ballet (SDCYB), founded in 1945 and celebrating over 70 years as the resident classical ballet school in Balboa Park.
What: A Midsummer Night’s Dream, set to the enchanting music of Mendelssohn and based on William Shakespeare’s classic comedy, is a ballet about the unexpected power of love. Audiences will be filled with joy as they watch the romantic adventures and misadventures of two pairs of mortal lovers, a mystical king and queen, a man transformed into a donkey and a mischievous fairy named Puck. This production is not to be missed for those inspired by the ballet, “The Bard” or both!
Directed by SDCYB Artistic Director Danika Pramik-Holdaway and featuring close to 200 student dancers, it’s perfect for audiences, families and ballet lovers of all ages. This classic story will come to life through dance on the stage of the iconic Casa del Prado Theater for one weekend only, April 4 – 8, with tickets ranging from $12 to $18 and special discounted performances for school groups and scout troops. After over 70 years of ballet in Balboa Park, experiencing SDCYB is a chance to celebrate history and support arts education.
Also, on Sunday, April 8th (immediately before the final performance), don’t miss SDCYB’s Assemblé from 11am to 1pm. This springtime, pre-show fundraiser includes a behind-the-scenes peek at the ballet, a meet-and-greet with costumed characters, sweet treats and morning drinks, access to a silent auction, and the chance to learn about other ways to support SDCYB's mission. Tickets are $25 for this "add-on" event, and please note that tickets to the matinee performance of the ballet are sold separately.
