The Fairy Queen

1 x 135 min

By dropping the spoken scenes of the whole semi-opera and highlighting the ear-candy songs, fabulous dance scenes, clever effects and on stage-silliness of Purcell’s work Harnoncourt father and son let the audience sit back and enjoy the memorable «masques» en suite. Taken on its own, the colourful series of scenes turns out to be a Baroque version of the «Everyman» play, where in a magical night a young couple encounters the heralds of nature. They remind the young persons of who they are, where they come from and where they are headed. And as you can see: The imagination knows no bounds in the realm of the Fairy Queen.
