Atlantic City, NJ (April 2, 2018) - The Atlantic City Ballet.

The Atlantic City Ballet will be returning in April to Atlantic City to end their 35th season by
presenting two ballets of Shakespeare’s best known works that each speak to audiences with themes of love, both comedic and passionate. 

First up is a performance of Midsummer Night’s Dream. One of Shakespeare’s best-known comedies, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a ballet about the transforming power of love. Based on William Shakespeare’s comedy about the romantic adventures and misadventures, of two pairs of mortal lovers and the king and queen of the fairies, the ballet, through its themes of reality versus illusion, displays love in all its guises. 

Next up in May is the world premiere of Romeo and Juliet. This classic tale about forbidden love is an emotionally stunning ballet combining intensity and passion to portray William Shakespeare’s tragic story of two star-crossed lovers. Along with the glorious melodies of Sergei Prokofiev, AC Ballet’s Romeo and Juliet will leave audiences entranced and proving that even in death true love cannot be overcome.

Founded in 1982, by International Ballerina, Phyllis Papa, the Atlantic City Ballet is comprised of professional dancers from around the world and have earned national acclaim for their technical expertise and exuberant stage presence. Although their home base is in Historic Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, the Ballet has performed in theaters all along the east coast and have just recently returned from their first west coast tour.


Their repertoire of original works includes such classics as A Midsummer Night's Dream, Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake but Ms. Papa is most known for her innovative works such as Dracula, Caught Up In The Swing and her full length Carmen. Since its inception, the Atlantic City Ballet has served as one of the cultural treasures of New Jersey and continues a tradition of dance excellence for future generations of ballet audiences.
