Dido & Aeneas: A Choreographic Opera
A stunning underwater ballet scene opens this experimental production of Henry Purcell's 1689 opera. Based on a story from Virgil's Aeneid, the opera tells the tale of star-crossed lovers Dido, the queen of Carthage, and Aeneas, a Trojan refugee. After Aeneas is shipwrecked, the two fall in love. But when Aeneas must leave to found Rome, Dido is heartbroken. Sasha Waltz staged this production at the Staatsoper Berlin in 2005.
