NEC's Jordan Hall
30 Gainsborough Street, Boston, MA

Purcell’s exquisite music—vivid and colorful with ingenious dramatic effects and an entertaining script by Jeremy Sams (creator of the Metropolitan Opera’s The Enchanted Island)—make for a fresh-and-fun riff on A Midsummer Night’s Dream, as seen through Queen Titania’s eyes. An encore of our summer 2017 Tanglewood performance—pure magic…bound to delight.
