Henry Purcell’s The Fairy Queen

For over 20 years, the French/American baroque heritage preservation society Les Arts Florissants has hosted Le Jardin des Voix, a vocal academy intensive culminating in an international tour, intended to cultivate the next generation of baroque singers. For the 2023 edition, nearly 100 candidates from around the world have been selected by the Co-Musical Directors of Les Arts Florissants, William Christie and Paul Agnew, to take part in the performance of Henry Purcell's exhilarating opera, The Fairy Queen. This original—and U.S. premiere—production of Purcell's musical fable, conducted by Paul Agnew, marks Les Arts Florissants’ first collaboration with choreographer and director Mourad Merzouki and his Compagnie Käfig dance corps, joined here by two young American dancers from The Juilliard School. Renowned for his fusion of classical influence and contemporary innovation, Merzouki's Fairy Queen promises a unique, visually spectacular, and emotionally powerful staging.
