Royal Danish Ballet

The highlight of my day was getting to see the Royal Danish Ballet perform A Midsummer’s Night Dream. I the production was really interesting because they combined classical ballet with neoclassical ballet during the dream-like fairy scenes. The costumes also reflected this stylistic choice. The classical ballet section was in traditional costumes and long flowing dresses while the neoclassical and more modern section was in tight white bodysuits.The music was also reflective of the classical and neoclassical sections, which was super interesting. The Royal Danish Ballet’s portrayal of the more intimate scenes was really amazing to watch because of how in tune the dancers were with their emotions and their partners.
