Dido And Aeneas

Dido And Aeneas

Lavish film production of Purcell’s operatic masterpiece.

Maria Ewing plays the doomed Queen of Carthage and Karl Daymond her lover, Aeneas. The opera is conducted by the late Richard Hickox.



“A production of Dido & Aeneas so rapturous it was worth the licence fee all by itself. Purcell’s jewel-box of an opera has a complex intensity that was a perfect for the small screen … A star cast … a knockout adventure … memorable imagery … Purcell’s lines live and blaze.”┬áThe Observer

“This gorgeous film of Purcell’s short opera is as lovely to look at as it is to listen to. Fast-moving, easy to follow and in English, this is the perfect opera for the non-buff – and for anyone who still needs convincing of Purcell’s greatness.”┬áDaily Mail
