Fairy Queen DVD

Price: £24.99 Buy Now

The DVD of Glyndebourne’s spectacular production of Purcell’s exuberant take on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream is now available.

Part spoken, part sung, Purcell’s The Fairy Queen is almost like an early-music musical. And Glyndebourne’s production of it could certainly match most shows in the west-end for spectacle, and with the OAE in the pit, of course, surpass them all musically…

The inventive theatrical production, featuring flying horses, excitably bunnies and more, is matched by a top-notch cast on this DVD, with conductor William Christie at the helm.
