Dido and Aeneas
By Henry Purcell
Performed in English
Musical Directed by Christopher Zemliauskas
Directed by Norm Johnson
Dido, fierce Queen of Carthage, falls in love with a Trojan Price, Æneas. While their love may be mutual, the fate of their romance is out of their control when a Sorceress plots the destruction of Carthage. Forced apart by trickery, evil and sorcery, the lovers are faced with a brewing storm and potential disaster. Based on Book IV of Virgil’s Aeneid, Dido and Aeneas is Henry Purcell’s one true opera and his only all-sung dramatic work.
