Dido & Aeneas


Presented by: York University Faculty of Fine Arts

Love. Passion. Destiny. Death. York U Fine Arts presents a fresh new production of a baroque classic.

Established and emerging artists at York Univeristy bring their talents to Henry Purcell’s three-act opera Dido and Aeneas.

Based on Book IV of The Aeneid, penned by Virgil in the first century BC, Dido and Aeneas recounts the tragic tale of Dido, Queen of Carthage and the Trojan hero Aeneas. Dido falls deeply in love with the fierce, handsome warrior Aeneas after he is shipwrecked on her shores, only to be devastated when he abandons her to continue his quest to found Rome.

This story of doomed love has resounded through two millennia. York’s production, a collaboration between faculty and students from the Departments of Music, Theatre and Dance, is a strikingly contemporary but timeless imagining. Accompanied by the York University baroque ensemble, thirty performers will be onstage through out the production forming a living set on the otherwise empty stage.
