UNLV Opera will be performing one of the first generation of operas - Henry Purcell's "The Fairy Queen." The opera or masque was written to celebrate the wedding anniversary of William and Mary, and it takes its story from Shakespeare's comedy, "A Midsummer Night's Dream." We talk to the director and two singers who play lead roles of Puck and Titania.
