Additional Information

The Haymarket Opera Company presents Henry Purcell's 17th century masterpiece, based on the fourth book of Virgil's Aeneid. Nahum Tate's libretto tells the story of Dido, the bereft Queen of Carthage, who falls in love with Aeneas, the Trojan hero. Black magic forces the two apart, he to leave her and become the founder of Rome, she to die of a broken heart. Our production features a newly-devised prologue by Ellen Hargis with baroque gesture and dance. Craig Trompeter, music director, Ellen Hargis, stage director, starring Kimberly McCord.
