The Fairy Queen

Pre-Concert Talk
Heidi McElrath, Seattle Shakespeare Company
6:30 PM // Nordstrom Recital Hall

English baroque composer Henry Purcell put his stamp on the musical world with an enduring work inspired by Shakespeare’s tale of love, magic, and fairies, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Enriching the Seattle Celebrates Shakespeare Festival, Soprano Suzie LeBlanc joins the Orchestra for The Fairy Queen and other English Baroque favorites including Matthew Locke’s The Tempest.

“[LeBlanc’s] clear and admirable controlled soprano danced easily among the high registers, arpeggios, and ornaments of Purcell’s music.” -Oregon Artswatch
