iVisit.... Town Hall Birmingham for Purcell's Dido & Aeneas

  • Town Hall Victoria Square Birmingham B3 3DQ U.K. (map)

At Town Hall Birmingham, Purcell’s opera, Dido & Aeneas tells the tragic tale of the Queen of Carthage as she falls in love with a Trojan Prince, and her heartbreak when, deceived by a Sorceress, he abandons her. It portrays the full gamut of human emotion, culminating in the haunting melancholy of Did’s famous lament – “When I am laid in earth”.
