Upcoming Performance:

Opera and Lyric Theatre Presents: Dido & Aeneas

A collaboration of the School of Music and Department of Dance

As one of the first and perhaps greatest of English operas, Dido & Aeneas offers a stunning combination of music drama inseparably entwined with vibrant dance and well-crafted choral writing.  Virgil's fateful story of the abandoned Queen of Carthage, versified by the poet Tate, culminates here in Purcell's masterful "When I Am Laid in Earth," one of the most moving and beloved arias in all of opera.

Music by Henry Purcell - Libretto by Nahum Tate

A. Scott Parry, director
Susan Van Pelt Petry, choreographer
Kristina Caswell MacMullen, conductor
