It will be a magical afternoon when the singers at the Norwegian Academy of Music invite you to a scenic performance of Henry Purcell's opera, The Fairy Queen (1659–1695). The libretto for the opera is based on William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream (1564–1616), so here we can promise a lot of love, some entanglements, mystery, elves, fairies, and exciting events deep in the forest.
Purcell's music is full of beautiful melodies, lively dance movements, passionate and virtuoso solo parts, and powerful choral pieces. The Norwegian Academy of Music's singers excel in solo and choral performances, as well as on the dance floor with the dance steps of the Baroque era.
A warm welcome to a magical performance that also lavishly celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Norwegian Academy of Music.
- The dress rehearsal on September 6th is open to invited students from high schools with music programmes.
