Dido and Aeneas tells the story of beautiful Dido, the Queen of Carthage, whose city is wealthy but defenseless, and the rugged Aeneas, the General of Troy, the impoverished city with a proud military tradition. Under immense pressure to fall in love and marry, they meet with all the eyes of two nations upon them.

They face witches and sorcerers, storms on the seas, and storms in their hearts. Singing Purcell’s timeless music, they struggle with love, duty, and destiny.
