The Fairy Queen

By Henry Purcell
Directed by Jane Davidson
Conducted by Donald Nicolson

Purcell’s The Fairy Queen is a ‘semi-opera’ combining an adaptation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream with a sequence of self-contained musical masques. This production focuses on the masques, but also hints at the original play, taking us from beauty and pathos to raunchy desire and comedy.  

Master of Music (Opera Performance) students collaborate with Bachelor of Fine Arts (Dance), Master of Production Design (Stage), and Early Music Studio students in this fairytale fantasy.
