A Midsummer Night's Dream

The Delacorte Theater, Central Park

Lear deBessonet, founder of the Public Theater’s Public Works program and resident director, brings her eclectic theatrical vision of A Midsummer Night's Dream to the 2017 season of Shakespeare in the Park. Following the director’s interpretation of the fairies and the forest as ancient entities, Rockwell Group took design cues from the very location of the play itself: the trees of Central Park, but aged hundreds of years.

Over 4,500 silk flowers in hues of pink, violet, red and yellow create a magical setting.

During the wedding, the palace walls covered in blankets of peonies and bougainvillea rotate into view as a 70-foot tall festoon of lanterns rises into the night sky.
