A Midsummer Night's Dream

Composer: Mikael Karlsson


© Royal Swedish Opera Hans Nilsson

Choreographer Alexander Ekman created his "Midsummer Night’s Dream" for the Royal Swedish Ballet at the Stockholm Opera set to a music by Mikael Karlsson. A powerful contemporary piece that explores the energy and the mysteries conjured up by the summer solstice in the Scandinavian tradition. It is the height of summer, the longest day of the year, and everyone celebrates the Midsummer. In a night filled with love and eroticism as nature gushes with vitality, the border between the world of mortals and the kingdom of the supernatural becomes thinner. Suddenly we are no longer sure – is it all a dream?
