  1. The Fairy Queen Z 629 - Henry Purcell

Sunset Sounds presents a semi-staged performance of Purcell’s 'The Fairy Queen' with a live orchestral ensemble in the picturesque gardens of Wyke House, in the village of Wyke Champflower, Somerset. The performance will be interspersed with poetry readings inspired by themes in the opera, and by Shakespeare's ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’.

Staged entirely outdoors, the performance will move between two different areas of the garden with a picnic interval. It’s a chance to enjoy “country house opera” in an intimate and informal rural setting surrounded by the beautiful Somerset countryside. Audience members are invited to bring a picnic, a blanket and a chair. Some straw bale seating will be provided. It promises to be a really magical evening, as performers and audience move from one space to another, and fire pits are lit as the sun goes down.
