Dido and Aeneas

May 15, 2021 - May 16, 2021
Ars Lyrica Houston / Zilkha Hall

Universal stories often revolve around impossible choices between love and duty, hatred and desire, will and destiny. The consequences of such turning points are both beautiful and tragic in opera especially.

To close this season of “Turning Points,” Ars Lyrica presents Henry Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, a miracle of operatic economy that tells a transcendent story of love and loss. This new production offers graceful period dancing, memorable choruses, and at its center a noble heroine who loves too well. Join us for a vivid collaboration with The New York Baroque Dance Company in this ultimate reflection on the consequences of our choices.

Abigail Fischer, Dido; Mark Diamond, Aeneas; Lauren Snouffer, Belinda; Matthew Dirst, Music Director; Catherine Turocy, Stage Director & Choreographer
