Before Duke Theseus, Egeus accuses his daughter Hermia, who does not want to marry Demetrius, who has been chosen by him, but Lysander. Hermia then flees with Lysander into the forest, being sought by Demetrius, who in turn is following Hermia’s friend Helena.

Oberon, the elf king, is at odds with his wife Titania. He has Puck, an elf, bring him a magic flower whose juice can make anyone fall in love with anyone. With the help of this magic potion, not only does Titania fall in love with the craftsman, Note, for whom Puck previously conjured up a donkey’s head, the cheeky elf also confuses the two human couples with zeal…

William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream (A Midsummer Night’s Dream) is the inspiration. This comedy full of frenzied lovers and wispy nature creatures also offers a whole series of demanding, central roles, which makes it possible to do justice to the many outstanding dancer personalities of the company.

In the 2018.19 season, the TanzCompany Innsbruck is celebrating a special anniversary: ​​Enrique Gasa Valga has been its director for ten years. The overwhelming success of the last few years is based on the enormous and continuously advanced development of the company. All of this has to be celebrated, and so Enrique Gasa Valga has chosen a very special work of world literature as a template for his new dance evening.
