This award-winning production is a dance-opera about the Queen of Carthage, Dido, who has fallen in love with Trojan prince Aeneas. As the union of the two lovers approaches, a coven of witches plots her downfall. Romance leads to heartbreak and tragedy. Conceived and choreographed by the celebrated Mark Morris, he takes a fresh and controversial approach in this adaptation of the Baroque operative masterwork written in 1689 by Henry Purcell, and stars in the dual roles of Dido and the Sorceress. The Mark Morris Dance Group are joined by the Tafelmusick Orchestra and Chamber Choir in this stunning production.
