Volksoper Wien

Ballett: Ein Sommernachtstraum

Choreography: Jorma Elo

The multi-layered levels of action in William Shakespeare's comedy correspond to the many-faceted stylistic interpretation by the internationally famed choreographer Jorma Elo. Decisive factors for Elo's approach to this work were its timelessness and the congenial music written for the play by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy. The ballet, which had its world premiere in 2010 at the Vienna State Opera, won the famous Prix Benois de la Danse award.
