Together with Holland Opera and the young talent trajectory of the Noorderkerk concerts "Under the direction of ...", we present a performance of Dido and Aeneas, Purcell's chamber opera.
The work portrays the story of an impossible and dramatic love between the Trojan hero Aeneas and Dido, the Queen of Carthage. Prepare for intrigues, glorious melodies, and theatrical elements.
Dido and Aeneas is often regarded as Purcell's masterpiece, and Dido's death scene with the aria "When I am Laid in Earth" is a classic from the Baroque repertoire.
