Never harm, nor spell, nor charm,
Come our lovely Lady nigh.
So good night with lullaby.*

In an unprecedented artistic coup, the Royal New Zealand Ballet is thrilled that Liam Scarlett, one of the most sought-after choreographers working today, will create his first full-length, main stage production, for the Royal New Zealand Ballet, in 2015.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream, based on Shakespeare’s play and with Mendelssohn’s wonderful incidental music, will have its world premiere in Wellington in August 2015. Scarlett’s musical, witty choreography, displayed in designs by Tracy Grant Lord (Cinderella, Romeo and Juliet) and lighting by Kendall Smith (Giselle) will bring Shakespeare’s enchanted wood and vivid characters, to fresh new life for New Zealand audiences.

Liam Scarlett was appointed The Royal Ballet’s first Artist in Residence in 2012. He has created a string of acclaimed ballets for The Royal Ballet, and his commissions for international companies have included works for New York City Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, Miami City Ballet, English National Ballet, K-Ballet (Japan) and the BalletBoyz (UK).
A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a co-production with Queensland Ballet.
