  8. Luke Jennings reviews Paris Opera Ballet in A Midsummer Night's Dream: https://www.theguardian.com/stage/2017/apr/02/midsummer-nights-dream-paris-opera-ballet-review-balanchine George Balanchine didn’t make many traditional story ballets. Narrative, you might say, was the least of his concerns. But in 1962 he lavished considerable love on his production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream for the New York City Ballet, set to an irresistible selection of compositions by Mendelssohn. This two-act work was secured for the Paris Opera Ballet by Benjamin Millepied, who resigned as director of the company last year. It was a smart choice, as was Millepied’s decision to commission new sets and costumes from Christian Lacroix. The result retains the delicate magic of the New York production, but is infused with a whimsical Parisian chic.
