George Balanchine’s magical adaption of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream features a lush forest besieged by quixotic love triangles, feuding fairy kingdoms, a hilarious hungry donkey and the cutest dancing butterflies. First act is more action packed than the second, so consider the cheap seats with the option to leave at intermission.
Anyone under 30 years old can get two $30 tickets through the $30 for 30 program. Technically it’s for ages 13-30, but my 6-year-old was able to bring me for cheap. Also sign up for children’s dance workshops before some shows.
Proof of vaccination required; ages 5+ only. All are welcome at the (shorter) New York City Ballet Family Saturday on May 28.
Enjoy free music and dance performances at a lush three-acre green space. On Mondays, classical cellist Luke Krafka perform; a variety of talented artists take to the stage on Wednesdays.
Seating is first-come, first-served; the lawn opens at 5pm. Bring your own blankets and picnic.More info
