San Francisco Ballet’s Midsummer Nights Dream features costumes designed by Christian Lacroix

When fashion meets the world of ballet, magic is bound to happen. Christian Lacroix, the celebrated French designer renowned for his extravagant designs for his fashion house, brought his unique artistic vision to life through his stunning costume designs for the Paris Opera Ballet’s production of George Balanchine’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The visually enchanting spectacle perfectly complements the whimsical charm of Shakespeare’s classic tale. These designs make their North American debut when the ballet returns to SF Ballet this season.

Lacroix’s designs bring Shakespeare’s forest to life with enchanting costumes that seamlessly blend history and modernity, immersing viewers in a world of love and magic. The intricate embroidery and vibrant colors breathe new life into the timeless tale, showcasing the transformative power of artistic collaboration between fashion and ballet.


Enter Shakespeare’s enchanted forest of whimsy, mistaken identity, and jest—where fairies rule and love (eventually) reigns supreme. A delight for all ages, the Shakespearean favorite choreographed by George Balanchine returns to our stage set to music by Mendelssohn
