The Fairy Queen: Three Wishes

This activity is completed or marked as expired


Welcome to The Magical Forest. As you make your way through it, you’ll soon discover that the journey to The Fairy Queen’s party is not a straightforward path. Strange things happen all around, as sprites and pixies enchant and trick – but the only true obstacle is ourselves. Following on from The Moon Hares in 2022, the OAE return with another family opera created in collaboration with communities from around the UK. Composer James Redwood and writer/director Hazel Gould transform Henry Purcell’s Shakespeare-inspired 1692 opera into a magical new adventure for the whole family. This reimagining of Purcell's The Fairy Queen is about wishes that come true, and what happens when they do, as we learn about friendship, love and telling the truth.
