Toronto Summer Music | Purcell: The Fairy Queen

July 11 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$38
Fairy Queen opera by Purcell

A new production of Purcell’s masterpiece, this Fairy Queen brings together arts, cultures and generations… for a unique experience! In an enchanted forest, reality mingles with dreams, illusion and the supernatural, as young people gather to escape the city and indulge in the magic of nature. Little by little, as the tunes and dances unfold, the boundaries between dancers, singers and musicians become blurred… leading to the creation of an egalitarian and fraternal community, united by the joy of music. Freely inspired by Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Fairy Queen invites us to plunge into an enchanting and playful universe, which continues to amaze us more than 300 years after its creation.
