The Fairy Queen


Every piece in Purcell's The Fairy Queen is a masterpiece. It's an enigma of a piece; there's much we don't know about it - including who adapted the libretto - but the music speaks for itself.

Enter a realm of sheer joy and exuberance, where fairies, mortals and people from myth and legend play together, bound in the magic of Purcell's score.

REVIEWS


The soul, of course, is in the singing, particularly the beautifully balanced partnership of Sara Macliver - clear, thrilling and brilliantly precise in Hark the Echoing Air - and Sally-Anne Russell, richly expressive in O let me weep.
