Behind-the-Scenes: A Midsummer Night’s Dream

In 2014 NBT presented Act I of George Balanchine’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, staged by Balanchine Trust Répétiteur Sandra Jennings, with Academy students performing alongside our Professional Company Artists. In this Behind-the-Scenes look we hear from Ms. Jennings as she talks about her journey from Balanchine student to emissary and teacher of his choreography. Students from the Academy share their thoughts on being in a professional production and the privilege of learning Mr. Balanchine’s masterful choreography from Ms. Jennings.
