Product Notes

Prior to Handel's arrival in London, and the influence of Italian opera that he brought with him, English opera was known as "semi opera" - a blend of drama, music, spoken word, elaborate stage sets, costumes and special effects. This "semi opera" inspired Purcell to compose some remarkable theatre music, with the Fairy Queen as his masterpiece in the genre. Based somewhat freely on Shakespeare's a Midsummer Night's Dream, it premiered at the Dorset Garden Theatre, London in 1692.
