Kira Dills-Desurra, Mezzo-Soprano

The Fairy Queen

Dates  Venue

Music by Henry Purcell
Adaptation by CULTURE CLASH & Andreas Mitisek


“Lord, what fools these mortals be!” This re-imagination of A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a gender-bending culture clash of social satire. Shakespeare’s labyrinth of foolish love is explored through our multicultural America and fused together through Purcell’s musical magic. The iconic CULTURE CLASH troupe updates the story with a Chicano tinge, and MUSICA ANGELICA—LA’s premiere Baroque Orchestra – creates authentic sound.

Two hours and 25 minutes including one 15 minute intermission
Sung in English
