Taking the idea of recycling musical materials as a starting point, the work- shop seeks to create a new version of Henry Purcell’s The Fairy Queen. The aim is to create an original tale, whose music will come from crowd-composition and the creativity of participants. Who was the fairy queen? Where did she live and what did she wear? Participants will be transformed into set and costume designers, experimenting with different materials and learning how to translate a work of opera into costumes and props. However, that is not all they do. They will also collaborate with the music workshop and reinvent the costumes and sets of this new version of The Fairy Queen.
