An otherworldly romance full of fairies, demons and princes, Wagner’s seldom staged first opera brings fantasy and whimsy to the stage. Despite all odds, a mortal prince and a high ranking fairy begin a romance that causes chaos and suspicion across their different worlds. When the star-crossed lovers are separated, a battle through the underworld ensues in their unwavering quest for love.
