Purcell's The Fairy Queen
This June, at an outdoor garden venue on Manhattan's Upper East Side, Gramercy Opera will mount the company's first main stage production.
The Fairy Queen will be a novel, re-imagined version of Purcell's work. Rearranged by classically trained stage director Brittany Goodwin, this production will follow the story of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Our main characters will take 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!
