THE FAIRY QUEEN – HENRY PURCELL

THE FAIRY QUEEN - HENRY PURCELL: 21/06/2024 - 06/07/2024

For 15 years, Armonico Consort has been in demand by festivals in the UK and Europe to perform its inimitable version of Purcell’s Dido & Aeneas. The singers and actors of the company now turn their attention to Purcell’s greatest semiopera in a brand new semi-staged version with a specially adapted script from Shakespeare’s ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’ create for the first time a modern-day retelling of both of these incredible works in one joyous evening! Armonico Consort will conjure up Purcell’s world of dreams and darkness, love and laughter in a not-to-be-missed evening!

This performance is generously supported by Hilary Eldridge, member of the Conductor’s Circle
