A FAIRY QUEEN

A FAIRY QUEEN
Live December 2021
Atlas Performing Arts Center, DC | Baltimore Theatre Project, MD

In A Midsummer Night’s Dream, everything is upside down, and so, IN Series celebrates the middle of Summer during the midst of Winter with a staging of A Fairy Queen. This live holiday event blends Shakespeare’s whimsical words with the unforgettable music of Henry Purcell. This melodious dream comes to life on stage in the style of a classic radio play, with live sound effect creation and featuring local radio personalities Murray Horowitz and John Scherch as master-of-ceremonies. Acclaimed soprano Claron McFadden joins a full baroque orchestra as the clarion voice of a trumpet, adorning this celebration of “the winter of our discontent made glorious summer.”
