Purcell: Dido and Aeneas catacombs image

Henry Purcell wrote Dido & Aeneas in 1680, but this tragic meditation on destiny, love, and death resonates just as powerfully today. Director Alek Shrader interweaves excerpts from Christopher Marlowe’s play based on the same story, infusing a sense of agency and dignity back to the character of the wounded queen, and the terrible decision she faces when abandoned by the love of her life. With superstar Daniela Mack as Dido, you won't want to miss her sing the heartrending final aria “When I Am Laid in Earth” (while...in...a...Catacomb!)
