What is Shakespeare without the timeless words of the Bard? Tulsa Ballet is about to answer the question when the acclaimed company brings an adaptation of his beloved comedy fantasy to the Tulsa Performing Arts Center’s Chapman Music Hall, 101 E. Third St., this weekend. Set to the music of Felix Mendelssohn, ballet’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is that fanciful interpretation of great literary works into choreography and theatrics that captures the jocular spirit of Shakespeare’s playful verse. Lovers get lost in a mysterious forest and caught up in some magical mischief with a quarreling fairy king and queen, a troupe of actors and ornery spirits like Puck. Even cooler, Tulsa Ballet recruited some local children to play the roles of sprites and fairies. Dost thou not have thy ticket in grasp yet? They are $36-$114 at www.myticketoffice.com. Performances are 8 p.m. Friday, Nov 1-Saturday, Nov. 2, and at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 3. Read more at www.tulsaballet.org.
