Dido and Aeneas

The politics of national identity, the royal succession and parliamentary faction, all hot topics in the late 1600s, found their way into the plots of plays and semi-operas intended to delight and entertain London’s theatre-goers.

Purcell’s fine incidental music to pieces such as Shadwell’s The Libertine and D’Urfey’s A Fool’s Preferment set the scene for Dido and Aeneas, one of the most celebrated of all English operas, featuring Tenebrae Consort as the semi chorus and directed by Trevor Pinnock.
