U of T presents: The Fairy Queen
About This Event
Henry Purcell flourished in the time that followed the Restoration of Charles II to the throne and his famous opera masque — first performed in 1692 and based on Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream — The Fairy Queen is a fanciful blend of magic and passion, profoundly moving and compelling. With love scenes laced with musical humour, Purcell’s genius for word painting and expressive music make for an enchanting evening.
Dominique Labelle coaches students from the Schola Cantorum and lends her voice to guide our musicians through excerpts of a work that is remarkably direct, celebrating life in its fullness and joy.
