THE FAIRY QUEEN
NEC’S JORDAN HALL
Purcell’s exquisite music—vivid and colorful with ingenious dramatic effects and an entertaining script by Jeremy Sams (creator of the Metropolitan Opera’s The Enchanted Island)—make for a fresh-and-fun riff on A Midsummer Night’s Dream, as seen through Queen Titania’s eyes. An encore of our summer 2017 Tanglewood performance—pure magic…bound to delight.
“A delightful operatic confection, led by Artistic Director Harry Christophers … was stylishly up to date … actress Antonia Christophers made a fine, sassy job of narration.”
-The New York Times
