The Fairy Queen

The Fairy Queen | co-production with Nederlands Blazers Ensemble

In January 2018, Duda Paiva Company performed in coöperation with the Nederlands Blazers Ensemble (NBE): more than twenty musicians who are driven by joint enthusiasm and an urge for adventure. The performance is Purcell’s The Fairy Queen, inspired by Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. An intriguing collaboration in which the NBE plays Purcell’s compelling music (like the famous ‘O, Let Me Weep’) and in which Duda Paiva Company creates an absurd, comical and sometimes sinister universe. A representation of true and unrighteous love, passion, sorrow and worship.
