One of the most widely-produced English-language operas, Dido and Aeneas is based on the story of Dido, queen of Carthage, and the prince of Troy, Aeneas, with a libretto by Nahum Tate. First performed in 1689, it is perhaps most famous for Dido’s lament, “When I am laid in earth.” In June, Juilliard415 and singers from Juilliard’s Marcus Institute for Vocal Arts will tour together for the first time, taking the Juilliard Opera production of Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas to Europe with performances at London’s Holland Park, and the Opéra Royal at Versailles. Conducted by Avi Stein and directed by Mary Birnbaum.
