A modern fairy tale inspired by Vivaldi’s Four Seasons & Purcell’s Fairy Queen

Join us for the theatrical premiere of the Four Seasons, weaving words, movement and music into a drama of imagination & romance about four seasons in the life of retired NASA scientist Walden Walker (actor David Rainey).  

Joined by Houston favorite, David Rainey, resident member of The Alley Theatre and Artistic Director of The Landing Theatre Company, this staged performance features the music of Vivaldi, Purcell and Rameau and was created by Antoine Plante and Denis Plante, after a short play by Denis Plante, with staging by Tango Boreal.

This concert is made possible in part by the Houston Endowment and the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance.
