In our outdoor amphitheatre this summer will be an exciting new production of Purcell’s The Fairy Queen. Directed by innovative director Ruth Mariner, and led from the harpsichord by William Cole, this production explores the folklore origins of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Nights dream. A unique glimpse into the beauty and majesty of the fairy world, this production weaves a thrilling new narrative around the enchanting music of Purcell’s masque, embracing the natural magic of outdoor theatre-making.
