Dido and Aeneas

Friday 25 October 2019 to Saturday 26 October 2019 (DAILY event)

Overview

Dido, the Queen of Carthage, falls in love with Aeneas. The gods have other ideas: they doom the lovers. Dido, despairing, kills herself. Purcell’s classic chamber opera interpreted afresh with a youthful, queer, subverted lens.
