The Fairy Queen by the Royal Irish Academy of Music

Sex, Drugs & Baroque opera in RIAM's production of the Fairy Queen

Written in 1692 based on A Midsummer Night's Dream, Purcell's The Fairy Queen is filled with fairies and mythical creatures intermingling with a foursome of humans wrapped up in an impossible love tangle induced my a magical potion. The opera is a humorous, sensual and decadent celebration of drug induced misunderstandings and trickery.

In my response to the story I tried to illustrate this love tangle (orgy?) highlighting the impostor fairy creatures (or perhaps the potion induced lovers) with a pearlescent glow. The visual language is meant to juggle the pure graphic line and modernist typography with ‘tacky’ elements such as fairy dust, outer glows and slanted type.
