The Fairy Queen

28 Apr 2024

Opera by Henry Purcell

HGO / HGOAntiqua Orchestra

In HGO’s revitalization of Purcell’s masterpiece, you will meet an ensemble of fourteen performers, led through the evening in a variety of incarnations by a magical tale-spinner tale-spinner, a photographer studying love through her camera lens. Purcell’s wonderful music takes us through the gamut of human emotions; each of his masques draws us into a different fantasy as we are taken into the photographer’s dream space where anything is possible.

“Are you sure that we are awake? It seems to me, that yet we sleep, we dream”

Eloise Lally directs, with Seb Gillot leading the HGOAntiqua Orchestra baroque ensemble. As always, HGO brings to the stage young singers, tomorrow’s opera stars, for an unforgettable evening.

Tickets for full-time students and under 25s are available at £15 for performances on 19, 20, 21 and 26 April.

A free flip-book programme will be sent before the production to all ticket holders who provide consent for their contact information to be shared with HGO.
