It takes a great choreographer to wrest a ballet out of Shakespeare's "The Tempest."

Why See American Ballet Theatre: Shakespeare Celebration?

The acclaimed American Ballet Theatre presents two of Shakespeare's best-loved works - The Dream and The Tempest - in this special double bill production celebrating the iconic writer's 450th birthday.

The Dream features choreography by Frederick Ashton and is a one-act retelling of Shakespeare's bohemian classic, A Midsummer Night's Dream.

The Tempest is a beautiful presentation of this dark and brooding masterpiece, choreographed by Alexei Ratmansky and with music by Jean Sibelius.
