Launched in 1995 by the English National Opera, David Pountney’s production of Purcell’s The Fairy Queen was received with great enthusiasm by both the public and musical press. An entire armada of excellent singers included Simon Rice as Puck, Yvonne Kenny as Titania, Thomas Randle as Oberon and Richard Van Allan as King Theseus. Under the musical direction of Nicholas Kok, the English National Orchestra played clearly and expressively. + “…exhilarating, funny, romantic, sexy ... a big company thoroughly enjoying itself…enormously invigorating.” (The Times)
