The Fairy Queen

The Fairy Queen

By Henry Purcell

Purcell’s Fairy Queen is a magical re imagining of scenes from ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. Purcell does not set any of Shakespeare’s text, instead he composed a sequence of masques which might have been performed around the original play. They are a metaphorical representation of the play’s themes.

Please join us for a semi-staged sequence of scenes from the opera. Featuring enchanting Faries, sequences depicting the seasons and the night with the odd godly interjection.

This promises to be a charmed baroque spectacular, all sung, played, and danced by our pupils.
