A theatrical performance of one of history’s most beloved pieces

Join us for a theatrical premiere featuring Vivaldi’s beloved Four Seasons and Purcell’s charming Suite from The Fairy Queen.  A magical staged performance, Mercury weaves a tale of inspiration and imagination with guest actor David Rainey and Montreal’s music duo Tango Boreal.

Created by Antoine Plante and Denis Plante and based on the short play “Fairy’s Dowries” by Denis Plante.
