The Fairy Queen - Summer Opera Performance 2023
At Drottningholm's palace theatre, this summer's big opera venture is The Fairy Queen by Henry Purcell (1659-1695). Based on one of Shakespeare's most beloved classics, A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Fairy Queen from 1682, transforms it into an iconic semi-opera in five acts. Purcell's poetic and humorous adaptation is a hybrid form of spoken dialogue and musical number for soloists, choir, orchestra and dance - a form that was very popular in England around the turn of the century 1700-1800.
