Dido and Aeneas
Dido and Aeneas, British composer Henry Purcell's first opera (1688), is one of the most beloved Baroque operas ever written. Based on book IV of Vergil's Aeneid, it concerns the love between Dido, the queen of Carthage, and Aeneas, the Trojan hero, who abandons her. Goucher's production will be a collaboration of the music, dance and theater departments and will be performed in Kraushaar Auditorium. The production will be directed by Jennifer Spieler, with choreography by Katherine Ferguson, and will feature an orchestra, chorus and soloists to be conducted by Tom Hall. There will be introductory remarks by Joanna Greenwood of the Music Department and English Professor Arnie Sanders.
