The Fairy Queen

The Fairy Queen

Purcells semi-opera for the young ones (8+)

In the season of 2017/2018 the Duda Paiva Company and the Dutch Wind Ensemble created The Fairy Queen. A critically acclaimed production.
In 2018/2019 The Fairy Queen will return to the stage in a specially designed new edition suitable for the whole family.

De Sprookjeskoningin is a festive weaving of the beautifull music of Henry Purcel – now played by 7 Young Dutch wind ensemble musicians – and the absurdly comical and sometimes sinister universe of Duda Paiva Company’s puppets. Together they will shape a modern view of the fairy tale of Titania and Oberon from Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ and their longing for real love.

Sung in English, spoken in Dutch.

The Duda Paiva Company in collaboration with Jong Nederlands Blazers Ensemble
Role: Oberon(voice and puppeteer)
