The Fairy Queen

The Gabrieli Consort & Players under Paul McCreesh present a concert performance of Purcell's proto-opera, based loosely on Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'. With sopranos Sophie Bevan, Katherine Manley, Zoë Brown, Helen-Jane Howells, tenor Nicholas Mulroy, and baritones Ashley Riches and George Humphreys. (Note: at 6.30pm, a pre-concert talk in which Purcell biographer Jonathan Keates and Pual McCreesh discuss the opera.)
