The Fairy Queen
by Henry Purcell
Chicago Opera Theater
featuring Haymarket Opera Orchestra
Haymarket Opera Orchestra will provide an orchestra of period instruments for Chicago Opera Theater's contemporary take on Purcell's semi-opera. Haymarket's own Grammy® nominated virtuoso keyboardist Jory Vinikour conducts.
This re-imagination of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, set in a sultry Las Vegas nightclub dubbed ‘Club Fairy Queen’, is an edgy and hilarious examination of the messes mere mortals make of relationships. The iconic Culture Clash troupe and COT’s Andreas Mitisek have updated this baroque classic.
November 5th, 11th, and 13th at The Studebaker Theater
