Purcell's The Fairy Queen
June 10/11/15/16 2017
Last June, at an outdoor garden venue on Manhattan's Upper East Side, Gramercy Opera mounted the company's first main stage production.
The Fairy Queen was a novel, re-imagined version of Purcell's work. Rearranged by classically trained stage director Brittany Goodwin, this production followed the story of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Our main characters took their names from Shakespeare's play --performing Purcell’s score infused with the poetry and drama of Shakespeare’s timeless classic.
What better way to dream of "midsummer" than by experiencing Opera's beauty under the stars!
